I found a spot the size of 2 quarters on my husband’s leg and had to wait until Monday to see the doctor. The doctor said it was an ulcer and should have wound treatments by a visiting nurse. We started our procedure and when the nurse arrived she asked what we had been doing with it and I said treating it with peppermint oil. She said if that is what you prefer to use we will give it try, and we continued with it. She came twice a week for two weeks and then once a week for a few more weeks constantly watching it heal quickly. (Which I know isn’t to be expected in ulcers). We did cover with a sterile dressing for a while but, it healed so quickly soon just the peppermint oil and now nothing.
