I have an abscess which I have packed daily by the district nurse. I have it packed in the morning, I have a bath in the moning, which makes the packing come out. I do this before my before the packing appointment, then in the evening I have a shower, but avoid the packed area. Is it ok to leave the packing in overnight.
Is it normal for the packing to have a slight smell, or is it a sign of infection, I'm feeling upset as If I leave the packing in overnight, it has a slight smell in the morning. I'm scared of the packing come out in the evening, as last time my wound healed on outside before the inside and I had to have an op to open the wound again
