Bed sore on my moms bottom, you can see almost to the bone. She is supose to stay off it and use no medication, why no medication?
Bedsores (also called pressure ulcers) can be a serious and even life-threatening situation. There are numerous different medications and therapies such as vitamins, wound-healing agents, and antibiotics that can play an important role in the treatment of bed sores. Serious pressure ulcers can not be expected to heal on their own so the assistance of a trained specialist such as a nurse who is skilled in wound care will play an important role in helping your Mom recover.
