Answer

Patients should be educated regarding the underlying cause of their stasis dermatitis and the permanent nature of venous valvular insufficiency.

For patient education information, see the Skin Conditions and Beauty Center, as well as Eczema and Deep Vein Thrombosis (Blood Clot in the Leg, DVT).
