As one gets older the body sometimes does not heal as fast as a younger person's. Older people usually also have hardening of the arteries and circulation is usually not as good as it should be. If the wound does not heal with antibiotics per mouth and regular cleansing, admitting the patient for IV treatment is the next step.
