4 days past surgery..infected??

Posted , 4 users are following.

I'm worried two of my cuts are infected

It's hard to see because the surgical glue is still in place but they don't look as clean and clear as my other cuts. They kinda burn... what do I do???

    Good morning,

    Call your surgeon or PC today so they can take a look. Try not to panic, if anything is infected they will probably put you in antibiotics. Best of luck, you will be ok.

      I think mines also have surgical glue over them as I can't actually see the disolvable stitches and he did say there will b disolvsble stitches but inside out? So donno if he had got a bit of glue over them?
