Periwound and pressure sores

  1. [FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Hi there

    I am in need of some help in regards to getting some insight regarding periwounds around pressure sores. For instance, I need to see what a macerated wound looks like as I have done a search on the web and nothing has eventuated. So if anyone does have a pic that they can share with me I would be so happy. I have an idea but I need to be sure. As this is based on my essay assessing wounds. Also, if there are any other types of periwound pictures that could also help to describe other types of periwound pressure sores.

    Thank you
