Oh goodness, yes! My oldest used to constantly have her scrapes turn into small infections. She wouldn't let us clean out her wounds. She had problems around her knees. It seems like we were constantly batteling it one summer. The cut or scrape would start to heal over, but then turn bright red and fill up with pus! It was gross and she hated us to mess with it to clean it out and fix it.
Luckily we haven't had problems with infection in a long long time... but she is old enough now to let us properly clean her wounds (well, most of the time anyway! she's 10 now)
