Thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com service.
Sores or irritation can occur in parts of the body that occur with a lot of friction and long-term pressure, such as the back of the heel (due to shoes), elbows (due to sitting position), or buttocks (in patients sleeping long). This can occur due to excessive friction, or lack of oxygen supply to the part of the skin that is pressed for a long time.Therefore, if the causes of the initial injury have not been avoided, then the wound can occur many times. The ground or ulcer is a collection of cells body cells that die when fighting infection. In the event of injury or irritation, skin tissue which is the body's first defense has been damaged, making it prone to infection.
Diabetes Mellitus is a disease characterized by high levels of sugar in the blood. This disease can occur due to hereditary (genetic) factors, as well as poor lifestyle (excessive glucose consumption, and lack of physical activity). High sugar levels in the blood can be toxic / toxic to body cells, both in blood vessels and nerve cells. That is why in patients with diabetes mellitus if there is a wound in general, the healing process takes longer. Patients with diabetes mellitus have symptoms such as frequent hunger, frequent thirst, and frequent urination. In addition, the diagnosis is made through checking blood sugar levels, fasting blood sugar, and HbA1C levels. To ascertain your illness, I suggest to see a general practitioner or a specialist in internal medicine.
For the time being you can do is ensure that the injury to your elbow is always clean. The wound can be cleaned with running water, then if there is a part of the skin that is open, it should be given an antibiotic ointment and then covered with a bandage, to prevent further infection. If the wound is large / deep, take it to the nearest health facility immediately. You can also read in more detail about how to treat good open wounds. In addition, avoid sitting positions where your elbows are always in a leaning position on the table. In addition to avoiding injury, a good sitting position will also prevent you from other diseases, such as muscle aches, spinal abnormalities, and vision problems.
Thus information from me, hopefully can help
