In brief: Healing depends...

Healing an infection depends on several things; 1.
The host: immune system intact /not ? 2. The organisms: ?Hyper-virulent organism or not, if the infection requires antibiotics is the organism susceptible to the antibiotics being used, and has the site of infection been adequately drained and all devitalized tissue removed and cleared away. 3. Size of the infection. Small days/large weeks.
