The slow wound healing process can be caused by poor nutrition, untreated infection, uncontrolled diabetes, immune deficiencies or continued injury to an area such a stoma.
Bedsores, more accurately called pressure sores or pressure ulcers, are areas of damaged skin and tissue that develop when sustained pressure cuts off circulation to vulnerable parts of your body, especially the skin on your buttocks, hips and heels. Without adequate blood flow, the affected tissue dies. Although people living with paralysis are especially at risk, anyone who is bedridden, uses a wheelchair or is unable to change positions without help can develop bedsores. Bedsores can develop quickly, progress rapidly and are often difficult to heal.
Diabetes affects many body systems, including the nerves, blood vessels, muscles and immune system. These factors can make the diabetic person more likely to develop sores on their feet. Prevention of foot wounds is important because once a wound starts, it can be difficult to heal.
