DEFEND Yourself Against Infection

DEFEND Yourself Against Infection

ALWAYS MONITOR YOUR WOUND!! This will help you defend yourself against infection. Follow these First Aid tips by Johnson & Johnson:











  1. Inspect the wound for any noticeable changes. If the wound is growing in size, it could indicate infection is spreading to nearby tissue.
  2. Look for redness or streaking. Streaking could indicate a rapidly spreading infection that may require immediate medical attention.
  3. Check for swelling around the wound. There will initially be swelling around the wound but it should decrease over time. An infected wound will become more swollen as time progresses.
  4. Monitor pain levels. A wound may hurt in the beginning, but pain levels will decrease over time; an infected wound will become more and more painful as time progresses.
  5. Check the area around the wound for warmth and tenderness. The tissue surrounding an infected wound will be tender and slightly warm to the touch.
  6. Look for discharge, pus or odor coming from the wound. While some discharge is expected with a new wound ; the discharge should never be excessive or have an odor associated with it unless it has become infected.
