That being said, here's my question (I couldn't find a good answer on Google, and despite the fact that I'm the weird chick who likes to read medical textbooks and the like for fun:
What would happen to someone with an infected wound if the wound was sealed up (let's say by healing magic) while still infected? I know that you MUST keep an infected wound open to allow for drainage, so I can only imagine that sealing it would be a Bad Thing. I just don't know exactly what would happen.
Any med students or doctors here who could help me out on this one?
