What is Wound Infection?

Description of the disease

Wound infection is an infection that develops in a wound after injury or surgical intervention. It can cause serious complications if not addressed.


  • Superficial wound infection
  • Deep wound infection
  • Sepsis


Symptoms of wound infection include inflammation of the wound, swelling, pain, purulent discharge, and elevated body temperature.


Wound infection is usually caused by bacteria entering the wound. Inadequate wound care can also contribute to the development of infection.


Clinical symptoms, blood laboratory tests, and cultures of purulent content are used for diagnosing wound infection.


Treatment of wound infection involves the use of antibiotics, regular wound care, and in some cases, surgical intervention.


To prevent wound infection, it is necessary to properly care for the wound, observe personal hygiene rules, and use sterile instruments when providing first aid.


Treatment of wound infection is carried out by a surgeon or an infectious disease specialist.
