Bedsores are also called pressure sores or decubitus ulcers and in Latin: decubitus. Although known by multiple names, they all mean the same thing: skin tissue damage caused by permanent pressure, shear force, friction or a combination of these factors. It most often develops in permanently bedridden patients, when blood doesn’t flow properly to an area and the tissues of parts of the body under pressure begin to die due to a lack of oxygen. Unfortunately, treating decubitus is very painful, so it’s worth putting an emphasis on prevention. The dermolex anti-decubitus gel provides an efficient solution to this problem.
