Treatments for bedsores (also known as pressure ulcers or pressure sores) depend on how severe they are.
For some people, they’re an inconvenience that requires minor nursing care. For others, they can be serious and lead to life-threatening complications, such as blood poisoning.
Ways to stop pressure ulcers getting worse and help them heal include:
Applying special dressings that speed up the healing process and may help to relieve pressure; Moving and regularly changing your position; Using specially designed static foam mattresses or cushions, or dynamic mattresses and cushions that have a pump to provide a constant flow of air; Eating a healthy, balanced diet; A procedure to clean the wound and remove damaged tissue (debridement).
Surgery to remove damaged tissue and close the wound is sometimes used in the most serious cases.
