Hello, Anon!

Thank you for writing today.

Bedsores also called pressure ulcers and decubitus ulcers, are injuries to skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin. Seek medical care if you show signs of infection such as, a sore that smells bad, a fever, drainage from a sore, or increased redness, warmth or swelling around a sore.
