These ulcers are very painful and usually occur through continuous pressure on soft tissue generally found over a part of a bone area such as shoulder, heel or hip. When the skin rubs frequently against clothes or bed linen or even perspiration could worsen the problem. Pressure ulcers could also lead to serious health issues as due to the blood flow to the affected area being reduced it could cause dangerous infections which may be slow to heal and not easy to cure.
