Be careful of resistant strain bacterias if empirical antibiotics being practice. There is no role of antibiotic for clean bed sores. Culture and sensitivity test should be taken prior to antibiotic therapy ... if infected bed sores.

* LINEZOLID +CEFIXIME.. * BETADINE .. ZINC OXIDE .. OINTMENT..

Tnx Dr Vipin Bihari Jain sir
