If the skin has already broken down
- Keep pressure off the affected area completely.
- Keep the area clean, you can wash it with boiled water (do not use strong antiseptics)
- Eat well. If lot of liquid comes out of the sore, a lot of protein is lost with it This must be replaced to promote healing. Eat food rich in proteins, i.e., milk, curd, pulses, eggs, meat, fish, beans, etc. Also take iron pills, if there are signs of anemia.
- If a sore is deep and has dead flesh, consult your doctor and follow his instructions.
