In general, wounds on the body in dreams are the result of painful experiences that affected you deeply. Bruises may make a poignant statement that you feel bruised by an argument, a betrayal, or an abusive situation. Open wounds in a dream may suggest that the emotional pain is on the surface and may need attention and a remedy to heal.
To dream that you are Wounded is a favourable omen.
A dream denoting affliction of the wounded parts (Gypsy). Interpretation coincides with that of modern writers.
(see Blood, Healing, Physician, Salve, Surgery)
Unresolved issues or an open emotional trauma that has not had time to heal.
Infected wounds represent the festering of resentment and bitterness. Remember that these negative emotions produce nothing positive, and only hurt you. Find a constructive outlet for your feelings instead.
