Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

are you having a nurse come to visit you routinely?

Dr. David :

are you bed bound?

Dr. David :

you need silvadine cream I think

Dr. David :

are you allergic to sulfa creams?

Dr. David :

you really need to be turned frequently so you are not still laying on the same areas all the time worsening your bed sores.

Dr. David :

it sounds like you need to be in a nursing home and have 24 hour a day care

Dr. David :

are you living by yourself at this point?

Dr. David :

I would make sure you get your wounds evaluated by a wound care nurse or a doctor for treatment.

Hello
In fact the nurse should not be left alone to take care of this based on your description so far.
These might need surgical debridement and the doctor needs to examine them and treat them at this point.

Ask for the physician to come look at these.
