A simple scratch on the foot in a person with diabetes or to the skin in a person with spinal cord injury (SCI) or multiple sclerosis (MS) can develop into a large wound that gradually spreads under the skin leading to osteomyelitis (bone infection) and sinus tract formation, i.e. bacteria and fungi boring tunnels into the tissue…

This will assure that the potential infection is being fought both from the “inside” and the “outside”. Bite wounds are caused…

Does the wound heal quicker if I continue applying MPPT after the infection is gone?

No, MPPT is for use during the inflammatory wound healing phase. Once the wound is clean, free of infection and exhibiting new granulation tissue as buds or healthy-red looking connective tissue and / or epithelial tissue, it has exited the inflammatory phase and entered the proliferative healing phase. In the proliferative phase, the healing usually proceeds unhindered…
