Extreme form of pressure ulcer This is a pressure sore. It arises from limited or completely suspended mobility (immobility) and is therefore not a separate disease. This badly and slowly healing wound comes v. A. due to a reduced perfusion of the tissue.
Decubiti this big are hard to treat. Intensive treatment including preventing more ulcers is key. It is more about consistent intervention than anything. I have successfully managed them with betadine and sugar in the 80's. Protein is key for healing as well.
Hi Cheryl Strahm pleasr can you explain more on sugar, what does sugar do?? sory just learning.
This person's care givers should go to jail. This sore took a long time to get this way, the person has been neglected plain and simple.
The sugar acts as a draw for infection, like warm compresses on a boil. If you keep the wound moist and prevent infection, it can heal, albeit slowly.
