When you have a wound, you know what usually happens: you clean it, treat it to prevent infection, and wait for it to heal on its own. But for some people, their wounds don’t heal in this straightforward manner - instead, they experience prolonged pain, and the wounds constantly produce pus and even a foul smell. Is amputation the only way out, or is there hope for treating these hard-to-heal wounds? We find out from wound care practitioner Dato’ Dr RS Kumar.
