7 May

(apologies for the layoff between posts; busy time lately, but should be back into a rhythm)

some nice images via this April E-Med Journal article (for when you next need to determine if there’s something there to I & D):

Arrows (top to bottom) indicate: epidermis, subcutaneous tissue, muscle, bone


to help differentiate the sometimes difficult to distinguish (left to right): cellulitis, abscess, lymph node
