Dear Payal

This is not the correct remedial treatment for your problem.
Bed Sores are a type of Ulcers or Skin Lesions which look like wounds.
Please try the following methods to get rid off Bed Sores.
1. Clean the affected area with saline solution ( Add 1 table spoon of salt to 1 glass boiling water, cool it to clean the affected area). Now make a paste of Turmeric by adding a little Honey to it. Turmeric has antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Apple the paste on the affected region.
2. Apply Aloe Vera gel on the affected region.
Please take good care of your Hygiene, as the chances of getting infection are more.
