Puncture Wound (cont.)
Puncture Wound Symptoms
Puncture wounds usually cause pain and mild bleeding at the site of the puncture. It is usually fairly obvious if a person is cut. However, small pieces of glass may cause puncture wounds that a person may not notice at first.
Infection may cause redness, swelling, pus, or watery discharge from a puncture wound that is not noticed or not treated properly.
