Often times this type of dressing causes an odor. The silver is antimicrobial and will kill off any bacteria, but I have noticed with these that even tho there is no sign of infection, there is a foul odor. How often are you changing the dressing? A foul odor with increased purulent drainage and redness around the wound be cause to worry.
