Bed sores are excruciatingly painful infections to deal with. Bed sores, also known as pressure sores or ulcer sores, are skin discolorations that appear on different parts of the body resulting from constant immobility. These skin discolorations are caused by pressure on the skin resulting from lack of movement, either laying or sitting for extended periods of time. Common areas that are at risk for bed sores are the head, the ear rims, hips, heels, ankles, back of arms, spine, shoulder blades, and any other areas of the body that would experience consistent pressure. If unchecked, bed sores that were once skin discolorations quickly develop into wounds that expose muscle and tendon. Not only will the infection spread as the bed sores become worse, but these infections can lead to amputation and even death.
