Do you know that bed sore can be a life-threatening disease? If you do not get treatment of bed sore at its early stages then it can be really painful and may take your life as well. You may even suffer from skin disorders/infections and hazardous diseases like ulcers as well.

What are the causes of Bed sore?

Bed sore is one of the very serious diseases that are generally prone to the people who spend most of the time resting on bed or are immobilized due to some reasons.
In bed sores, most of the body pressure is confined to certain body organs like hips, heels, elbows, shoulder blades, etc.

One of the major and common causes of bed sores is moisture, generated from friction with bed sheets and sweating from the body.

What are the treatments of Bed sore?

Bed sore is not an incurable disease. There are several therapies that can cure bed sores:
  • Herbal Treatment: During herbal treatment, herbal products like aloe vera are used. Herbal medicines, gels, creams or ointments are applied on the affected areas.
  • Self treatment: You need to minimize the pressure on the affected area of the body. Keep that portion dry and clean. If the condition gets worse then you may use bandages, dressings and other heeling methods.
  • Diet Control: Start having nutritious food that is enriched with vitamins, minerals like zinc and other important health elements. Drink water as much as you can in order to avoid dehydration. This will help in strengthening the immune system of the body.
