Hand Infections


 

Hand infections can occur from minor trauma. They can range in severity from a small superficial cellulitis (skin infection) or abscess to a deep space infection in the hand that is a surgical emergency. Symptoms of infection include redness, swelling, pain, warmth and possibly fever, chills or drainage of pus from a wound. Many minor infections can be managed in the office and with antibiotics. More severe infections, however, may require urgent surgical attention.
