Symptoms of Non-healing Wounds

A non-healing wound is nothing to take lightly. Open wounds increase your risk of exposure to germs and bacteria. Infections that start in wounds can spread to other parts of the body and lead to serious health complications. This can often be prevented by monitoring the wound and seeking treatment if it displays worrying symptoms.

Symptoms of non-healing wounds include:

  • Wounds that show no sign of healing after several weeks
  • Pain that increases or does not decrease
  • Strange odors coming from the wound
  • Pus or other substances leaking from the wound
  • Dark discolorations around the wound

Be sure to speak with a wound care specialist if you notice any of the above symptoms after sustaining a wound.
