    rug burn on the butt cheeks

    Im a 30 a year old t6 para and this morning i was on the ground working out. I was sitting up and using my arms to slide my body backwards and afterwards I realized both my butt cheeks have rug burns on them. Is there a nurse here who can advise me on what to do? I do not want them to turn into a pressure sore. I can private message the pics so you can see how bad it is and if I should go into a hospital or how to care for it at home.

    Silvadene. best thing to heal "burns" and has antiinfective properties. Apply then cover with non gauze/non sponge like adaptic- something that won't suck it up.

      If they are open wounds, stay off them completely until healed. Down time is as bad as it gets with SCI but the best way to prevent infections and or pressure sores. Good luck!

        Please send a photo to the SCI-Nurse hotmail address (find this in the "sticky threads" on this forum). You cannot insert photos into PMs here.

        Without seeing the skin damage, it is impossible to give you adequate advice.

          Get yourself a Jay Protector if you are going to crawl around. The damage you do is cumulative. Each time you hurt your skin it weakens it for the next time.
