Wounds can have an unpleasant smell. Foul smell can be caused by bodily fluids that end up on the wound (for instance, due to incontinence), or due to particles released by the wound tissue, as it gets broken down by certain germs. Persons with foul smelling wounds may get acclimated to the smell but may remain concerned about how others perceive it. 

Odor of a wound can be evaluated after the wound is cleansed and debrided (if necessary). To reduce any remaining unpleasant odor, causes should be addressed. For example, if the wound is infected, infection should be treated. Other products also help reduce malodor: wound dressings specifically made to control odor and sprays that help eliminate odors in the environment around the person with a foul-smelling wound. 

Flagyl 3% gel can be compounded by some pharmacists and applied to a foul smelling wound if other methods for odor control have failed. It is costly but effective for wound odor control.
