Helloooo, I am writing a story that's set roughly between Middle Ages and Renaissance. I have a character who has been sliced fairly superficially from collarbone to bellybutton, and has a small stab wound in his side. He's been using the same bandages for 2 days, with minimal washing. How long would it take for his wounds to get infected? Once infected, how long before it goes septic, if at all? I would like my story to be realistic, so if anyone with a medical background happens upon this, I'd appreciate any feedback, be it an answer or a place to find it. Let me know if I can provide any more details!
