Causes of Infected Wounds
Infected wounds are caused when the body’s immune system is compromised because of a disease like diabetes. Bacteria, or other microorganisms, settle in resulting in an infected wound that will not heal properly. Because the infection can spread, it is critical to seek immediate care from our wound care specialist.
Treating Infected Wounds
The most serious complication of such kinds of wounds is that they become non-healing wounds. Long term, non-healing wounds can deteriorate the tissue, muscle and bone. Proper wound care is the most important step in healing an infected wound. The wound should have clean bandages and should be changed daily with antibiotics.
