Caption: Illustration of a woman with bedsores or pressure sores and a cross-section of the sore. Bedsores can be caused by many factors including unrelieved pressure, friction, humidity, etc. Bedsores usually afflict the frail and elderly, wheelchair bound people and the terminally ill. Bedsores can be fatal but can be treated and cured by a regimen of relieving pressure by turning the body on a strict schedule.
