How to treat a heel fracture is dependent upon the type of foot wound you have. When suffering from re-occurring ulcers on the foot it is very important that you regularly and routinely clean the wound. After cleaning the wound you should always apply antibiotic ointments or creams and cover it with a bandage to prevent infection. You should monitor the wound site for any sign of infection like redness or pus. You should contact a medical professional like Doctor Hochstein immediately if your wound will not stop bleeding, is extremely painful, or shows signs of infection.
