Lymphedema can be debilitating and can lead to serious skin infections and wounds.

Chronic swelling in the lower body can be a challenge to diagnose because there are many potential causes. If the cause is lymphedema, it can also be difficult to manage because there currently is no “simple fix,” such as a pill to take. In the absence of appropriate treatment, lymphedema can cause skin infections, like cellulitis, permanent internal scarring (fibrosis) and other serious skin changes or wounds.

As with any chronic, progressive condition, early intervention and practical tools for daily management create the best results.
