In brief: Dry or wet?

Either is fairly obvious and requires treatment.
Wet unusually associated with progressive necrosis/death of tissues with a foul odor and occasionally has air in fhe tissues characterized by a crunchy sound when pressed. If usually occurs in immunocompromised patients in areas of compromised blood supply. The area is surrounded by increased redness. Dry gangrene tends to exhibit black tissue.
