Open sores on your feet

Open sores are excruciating, especially when referring to those on someone’s feet. If you have some, too, you need to go to the doctor. Open sores could actually be a less-known sign of a heart issue called aortoiliac occlusive disease. This heart condition refers to the blockage of the body’s main blood vessel, a.k.a. the aorta.

Vascular specialists say that this heart condition can easily lead to ischemia (a significant decrease in the supply of oxygen and blood to tissues). Actually, it’s ischemia that makes your tissue break down, leading to open sores or even ulcers. In severe cases, ischemia can result in gangrene, too.
