Soft tissue infections arise when a minor cut or graze is not cleaned properly.  The wound becomes red and swollen and may start to discharge pus.  A red line may also appear and track up the affected limb.


Contact the doctor when the surgery is open if:

  • you feel an injury may be becoming infected

Contact the doctor straight away if:

  • you feel an injury may be becoming infected and the patient is unwell or feverish
