84 yo Man with Atrophie Blanche

The patient is an 84 yo man with a ten year history of extremely painful ulcerations of his lower legs.
Other than whirlpool baths, I have found nothing to be of value.
His health is good and he has bounding dorsalis pedis and posterial tibial pulses.
I assume this is Atrophie Blanche.
Do you have any therapeutic suggestoins?
