Overcoming Bruises On The Back And Legs?
with me Laras..rnWhat if there is a wound on the back, is it serious or not.rnBecause the back and the top of the leg are bruised.
Good morning Laras, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. For this question, allow us to represent our partners. Wounds to the back, as our colleagues have mentioned before, are called pressure ulcers and are one of the most common injuries received by patients on bed rest or staying in one position for a long time. Maintaining the position for a long time can put pressure on certain body parts and eventually cause injury.
Because it is caused by maintaining body position, of course one way to avoid and cure it is to change body position regularly, either actively, i.e. moving alone, or passively in the form of being assisted by family or people around. In addition, pillows and special cases can also be given which further minimizes the risk of pressure sores, as well as antibiotics, special bandages, certain creams and ointments, dietary supplements such as vitamins A, C, protein and even surgery if needed.
So our advice remains the same as that of our colleagues, you should take your father to the hospital for hospitalization. Because by being hospitalized, there will be a nurse who ensures that injuries and other complications do not occur, even if they occur, your father will immediately get treatment because he is already in the hospital. If you want to know more about these sores, click the following link to our article on Decubitus Ulcers. Hope your father gets well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
