The surgical site infection is a dangerous complication, occurring in surgical patients, which results in aggravation of the postoperative period. It occurs within 30 days from the surgical intervention at the surgical site or the same body area. The most common reason is bacterial contamination from the skin, genital or digestive systems, its main cause being S. aureus. This type of infection is classified as: superficial - affecting the skin and hypoderm; deep - when affecting the fascia and the muscles and organ-based - when affecting body cavities and organs therein. The signs for superficial infection of the surgical site are: presence of necrotic edges of the surgical wound, suppuration running out of it, reddening, swelling, pain and warming of the site. In the treatment of surgical site superficial infections, the following methods are being used: systemic antibiotic therapy, taking out the skin stitches, pus drainage, surgical and non-surgical necrotomy, local vacuum therapy, local application of antiseptic dressings, hyper-bar oxygenation, local administration of products, facilitating granulation and epithelization. We present here two clinical cases of alternative treatment with Theresienöl of surgical site superficial infection.
