Thread: Puracyn Plus to heal pressure sore? (wound picture attached)

  1. #21
    My observation of the wound from the picture is that it is much deeper and filled with non-healthy tissue. In all likelihood, they may need to cut away that dead tissue. I would also encourage you to get worked up for osteomyelitis. Given the length of time that you have had this problem and the fact that it is not healing, there is a chance that you could have it. No wound will heal without treating that first.

    I only had this wound for about a month, maybe a month and a half - the 1st one was on my butt
