Remaining hydrated is essential when you are recovering from an injury or illness – this is also the time you are most likely to develop bed sores. Keeping the body hydrated will ensure that the skin is soft, which will allow dry or dying skin cells to slough off easily, preventing the large, inflamed sores from becoming more irritated. Your body is recovering and repairing itself during those long, sedentary periods, and water is a key ingredient in almost every bodily process. Not only will 8-10 glasses of water per day help you prevent the symptoms of bed sores, but will also get you back on your feet faster!
