Bed Sores Treatment: How to Treat Bedsores
at home – Top 5 Remedies for Bedsores. When a person is confined to a bed or a wheelchair
for long periods of time due to illness, skin ulcers that are commonly known as bed sores
begin to develop. This condition is quite common among the elderly,
but they can develop in people in a coma or those rendered immobile due to various health
issues. Being immobile and staying in one position
for a long period reduces the blood flow to various parts of the skin, thereby causing
severe sores or blisters. The most commonly affected areas include hip,
buttocks, lower back and shoulder blades. How to Treat Bed Sores At Home? Reducing pressure. The first step in treating a bedsore is reducing
the pressure and friction that caused it. Strategies include:
Repositioning. If you have a pressure sore, turn and change
your position often. How often you reposition depends on your condition
and the quality of the surface you are on. Generally, if you use a wheelchair, try shifting
your weight every 15 minutes or so and change positions every hour. If you’re in a bed, change positions every
two hours. Use a mattress, bed and special cushions that
help you sit or lie in a way that protects vulnerable skin. Honey: With strong antiseptic quality, honey
is undeniably one of the best home remedies for bed sores. It is usually used to soothe itchy or swollen
skin, even when the cause is not bedded sore. Honey is also well-known for its ability to
improve the healing of the skin. Honey also helps to remove dead cells around
the wound and clean the surface from bacteria. Mix sugar and honey together in the same amounts. Then, get the mixture applied over areas affected
by bed sores. Use a bandage to cover them, this remedy should
be followed once per day. Hydrate, Hydrate, and Hydrate: Yes, you heard
it right! The main reason behind bed sores is improper
blood circulation. Drinking plenty of water and other fluids
like lemon juice, coconut water, fruit juices, soups etc. can help in hydration and prevent
bed sores from occurring. Hence the simplest and easy method is to drink
plenty of water. Saline Water: To help bedsores heal faster,
clean the sores with saline water. Bed sores that are not cleaned properly are
more prone to infection and inflammation. Saline water will reduce excess fluid and
also get rid of the loose dead skin. Mix 2 teaspoons of salt in a cup of water,
boil it and then allow it to cool. Use this solution to clean the affected body
area. Allow the area to dry thoroughly, and then
cover it with a bandage. Repeat a couple of times a day. Vitamin C: Vitamin C works fantastically for
bed sores. It is a super strong anti-inflammatory and
antioxidant that can speed up the healing process and protect your skin from long-term
damage. In fact, studies show that people who have
vitamin C deficiency are more likely to develop bed sores than those who don’t. Specialists recommend three doses, each of
500 milligrams of vitamin C every day for outstanding results. If you don’t want to take a supplement,
you can increase your intake of foods that are high in vitamin C, such as bell peppers,
oranges or grapefruit. Thanks for watching, don’t forget to subscribe
