Are Bed Sores Painful?

By Bed Sore FAQ

Bedsores Painful

Yes. Bed sores can be excruciatingly painful due to the fact that they are essentially an open wound in the body and they frequently develop in areas where it is essentially unavoidable to put pressure (such as the back, buttocks or heels).

For this reason, even the most mundane everyday activities such as sitting, turning, lifting cleaning and dressing changes, can cause intense pain.
