      Interesting how everything is broken down into contamination, colonization, local infection etc.. What did you like about it?

      This was interesting to see the growth and life cycle of bacteria and how our bodies react to it. I’d like to see an accompanying chart showing the healing process of wounds with the introduction of antibacterial creams, scabbing over, etc. Most of the time I don’t do much to small wounds and let my body take over the healing process, but for larger ones it would be important to treat as soon as possible and possibly see a wound doctor.
