Dear Jane
It depends on what is causing the ulcers - diabetes/arterial blood flow problems/thrombosis/varicose veins?
One needs to treat the cause first. Different diseases will also cause different kind of pain - diabetes can cause nerve pain and arterial blood flow problems can cause pain due to too little oxygen in the tissue.
