Thread: Sore/red area

  1. #1

    Sore/red area

    I slept bad on a couch, and I woke up with two marks. One sort of longer one (about 2 inches long) and a little raised a few inches to the left of my sacrum, at about belt level. I'm not really on it when I sit. Then a little spot just to the right of my sacrum.

    I put a duoderm patch on the longer one and left it on for 1 or two days. Now, the original spot is gone but theres a red mark the size of the patch, and its not going away. The spot is about the same near the sacrum.

    Not sure what to do...

    Wash the area with plain water,Keep the duoderm off and don't put any pressure on the area till the redness goes away.
