Many people staying in hospital settings acquire pressure ulcers, or more commonly known as bed sores. Researchers created a treatment and control group. All patients were treated for bed sores and had two treatments a day. One group was treated with aloe vera and the other group was treated with a placebo. They concluded that the patients treated with aloe vera had less swelling, redness, and pain than the other patients.
