Hi.
As per your case history of bed sores.
My treatment advice is -
1. Avoid pressure on the affected part.
2. Apply a mild antibiotic cream like fusiderm cream twice daily on it.
3. Other treatment options are oral antibiotics like levofloxacin, cefadroxil and azithromycin taken only after consulting a dermatologist.

Thanks.
