What is Chronic Pyoderma?

Chronic pyoderma is a rare, long-lasting, and often recurring skin condition. Bumps or blisters (anywhere on the skin but most frequently on the legs) merge to form potentially large ulcers or open sores. The cause is unclear but is thought to be related to an immune system problem. Adults with immune system disorders, certain cancers, or recent skin injuries are at a higher risk of developing this condition.

Typical Symptoms of Chronic Pyoderma

  • Skin hardening

  • Bumps containing pus

  • Scars or marks from the rash/wound

  • Skin redness or red bumpy rashes

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Chronic Pyoderma

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Do you have skin hardening?

  • Do you have pus-filled bumps on your skin?

  • Do you have scars or marks from previous rashes or wounds?

  • Do you have red skin or red spots?

Treatmentof Chronic Pyoderma

Prompt medical attention is required. Treatment involves wound care, medication to suppress immune cells, heal skin sores, and manage pain.
