LOcalised infection of the wound due to faecal bacterial contamination would occur.This would lead to local sepsis.If the body's immune system is weakened due to other factors,this may lead to a fulminant infection which may result in septicaemia or blood infection.In a healthy adult the wound infection is likely to be localised by the immune system and may heal in due course.
How long would a wound have had to have healed before it would have been relatively sealed off from outside germs?
I think my question has already been answered. Thanks though. (hopefully this won't incur additional cost)
