CHRONIC WOUND CARE for INFECTIOUS WOUNDS
Infectious wounds develop when an infection isn’t treated correctly. They occur when germs such as bacteria gain access to and grow within the damaged skin of a wound. These wounds are dangerous since the infection can spread to the blood and to different parts of the body.
Infectious wounds have a foul odor, pus, drainage, dead tissue and inflammation. Symptoms can include increasing pain, swelling, and redness.
More severe infections may cause nausea, chills or a fever.
