56 y/o Male with these new dark spots that appeared over the patients back and upper left shoulder. The patient is prone to laying on back mostly all day when in bed or recliner to which he spends 80% of his time due to his profound muscle weakness. Does this look like pressure sores developing over the left shoulder and left lower mid-back? Any tips and info would be greatly appreciated.
