One day after administration of the hypochlorous acid, the fever began to subside, suggesting that this solution was able to adequately destroy the infecting microorganisms. The patient rated his pain during this procedure as 2/10. The infection had cleared within 2 weeks, and a swab culture found no microbial growth. The wound volume was reduced by more than 90% after 5 weeks, and final wound closure was achieved after 6 weeks.
