I have sores down past my tail bone from sitting on my couch on heating pad. How do I treat the sores?
Skin ulcers: Skin breakdown in the tail bone area can occur from pressure such as sitting for long periods and can happen faster when adding heat from a heating pad. You need to avoid the heating pad and sitting for any amount of time until these have healed. Clean the area, dry it well and use Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) or Butt Cream to protect the skin from more damage. See your doctor if this does not help heal the area. ...Read more

Bad Idea: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. No irritating alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, vinergar and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

This could mean that one of you had an infection such as impetigo and shared it with the other. The other possibility is a contact dermatitis to something both of you were using. Please see your doctor right away for diagnosis and treatment. Impetigo is very contagious. ...Read more
