A chronic wound is a wound that does not progress toward closure in a timely manner. The typical signs of a chronic wound include:

  • Pain (except in many cases of diabetic foot ulcer, where there is no sensation at all)
  • Erythema (inflammation or redness of the skin)
  • Edema (swelling)
  • Heat
  • Purulence (the presence of pus)
