Topical creams that contain sulfadiazine can improve healing process. Anti-inflammatory drugs like dapsone give quick relief. For some people compression bandage is done on the legs to reduce the pain. Immuno-suppressant drugs like tacrolimus cream are prescribed to control the immune system if that are the culprit causing blisters and bumps on the skin. Surgery will be done for treating chronic pain arising from large ulcerous blisters. Skin grafting is another method in which piece of artificial skin is grafted to the affected area after completely removing the ulcers.
