irrigation of the wound using IrriSept

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. State of wound [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
    physician assessment of wound at 48 hours - either as cured, improved, no change or progression

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) colonisation Rate [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]

    rates of MRSA nares colonisation

    subjective measures of discomfort/pain
