Caption

Infected scratch. View of a highly inflamed and infected wound, caused by a scratch from a rose thorn, on the leg of an 88 year-old woman. The skin has peeled away from this week-old scratch, revealing the pus inside. The infection has caused discoloration of a large area of the leg. Elderly people have thinner and less-elastic skin, making such wounds slow to heal and prone to infection. Such a wound will need thorough cleaning and may require treatment with antibiotics and suturing.
