How Are Infected Wounds Treated?
Treatment for infected wounds includes a combination of wound cleansing, wound debridement, topical or oral antibiotics, and the appropriate dressing for the type of wound. Wound Evolution may use an antimicrobial dressing, which uses silver technology to fight bacteria and other microorganisms.
Nutrition and hydration are also important parts of your treatment for an infected wound. Your body’s healing process demands more than the recommended daily intake of calories, protein, and nutrients. The team may recommend dietary changes or supplements.
