    Through many trials and failures I have finally been able to heal a sacral pressure wound using some bandaging techniques. And it has remained healed. The wounds were deemed chronic and two years old, yet they are healed. I want to share with others dealing with these types of wound the techniques that worked for me. So, I put it on line for all to see. I am simply sharing this info, not charging for it. Go to pressurereliefbandage.com
