Writing on behalf of my grandpa. He's currently undergoing treatments for his brain tumor (after surgical resection and RT, before chemo currently) and this red lesion appeared on his right buttock around three months ago, after his first hospital stay. It stayed more or less the same - dry, redish and stinging when it warmed up so he had to make sure to change sitting position often. We've tried plethora of things like hydrocortisonum ointment, sudocrem, clotrimazolum, antiseptic sprays, baby powder, all-in-one OTC wound creams with allantoinum and dexpanthenolum - but to no avail.
After his last hospital stay (6 weeks, undergoing RT) he also developed a second lesion of the same type on the left buttock. As can be seen on the photo, this one is bigger and more crater-like and grandpa says that now not only is it getting stingy when it warms up but also when he sits for a moment and tries to stand up, it feels like it dried up a bit and is tearing open which causes significant discomfort and some pain.
What may this be? Sure, grandpa spent a lot of time laying down in the hospitals but it's not like he's immobile and he wasn't moving the whole day or anything. He did the rehabilition excercises every day, tried his best to move as much as possible and applied the sprays and creams himself every day while at the hospital too, but it did not help much.
What else can we try? The hospital staff always just recommended spraying this with antiseptic sprays and using soothing creams like sudocrem but as it shows, it did not really help at all :(
