Ointment To Treat Pressure Sores?
My mother has decubitus in the buttocks, what kind of ointment can be used? Can the wound be closed with tegaderm?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Decubitus ulcers are damage to the skin tissue due to pressure for a long time and are often encountered in people or patients who lie long in bed.
To get the right treatment, it is necessary to do an evaluation and direct examination of the ulcer to assess the depth of the wound as well as to assess the infection that occurred which then becomes the reference for choosing the right therapy.
In the meantime what you can do include:
Change the position of the body regularly and periodically both actively and passively
Change your sleeping position periodically, on your back, left tilt, right tilt
Use a mattress to prevent pressure sores
Maintain cleanliness of the body and the environment
Avoid humid atmosphere
To get further examination and treatment related to your mother's clinical condition, you should check your mother to a surgeon to get further examination and treatment related to your mother's condition
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
