A foot ulcer is a medical emergency and must be taken very seriously. A foot ulcer or wound is very susceptible to infection, which puts the person's limb, and even life, at risk. An infected foot ulcer is a main cause of amputation of the foot or leg. If addressed early, however, a foot ulcer can be healed and measures can be taken to prevent it from occurring again.
