What are the beginning signs of pressure sore?

Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores, are skin injuries that can occur when blood flow to an area is interrupted due to prolonged sitting or lying in one position. Early detection of pressure ulcers is crucial to prevent pain and complications. The following are early signs of pressure ulcers:

  1. Redness of the skin
  2. The affected area may feel unusually warm or cold to the touch
  3. The skin may appear blue or purple
  4. Pain, tingling, or itching in any part of the body

If your doctor diagnoses an early stage of pressure ulcer, they may recommend the following:

  1. Reducing pressure in the affected area by changing positions regularly. Patients who are bedridden should be repositioned every two hours, while those in a wheelchair should shift their weight every 15 minutes.
  2. Cleaning the affected area with mild soap and water, avoiding rubbing or irritating it.
  3. Using medical healthcare products to reduce and prevent bedsores, such as anti-decubitus air mattresses, turning pads, and medical beds.
  4. Maintaining a nutritious diet, getting adequate sleep, and exercising properly.

If you are caring for someone who is at risk of pressure ulcers, it’s important to check their skin every day. If you’re not sure how to identify the early signs, contact your doctor immediately for guidance.
