What Is Wound?

A wound is any physical injury that involves a damage or break in the continuity of our skin.

Wounds may be caused by stumbles and trips, puncture wounds, running into things, etc.

Untreated wounds leave a wide open entry for bacteria.

The infections that may follow can result in sepsis, gangrene amputation or even death.
