The natural response to injury, irritation or pain is ‘inflammation’. Inflammation is natural body’s protective reaction to destroy foreign bodies and dead cells at an injury/infection site to initiate the healing process. The inflammation period can last from several hours to several weeks into the healing process.
Signs and Symptoms of Inflammation:
