So about 2 weeks ago I had the staples removed from my ankle wound a couple of them had irritated my skin causing a scab to form next to my incision recently as the scab has gotten smaller its is now directly on my ankle joint location which seems to rub against my walking boot (I am wearing fresh gauze and an ace bandage over my ankle daily aswell). Because of this rubbing it is causing the scan to weep a clearish yellow fluid onto the gauze there isnt a ton of it and its not like it is pus but it causes the area to get moist and the scab to become soft after i let it air out the scab becomes hard again and all is well until this process repeats itself the next day.
I talked to my surgeon he said the area is not infected and just to keep an eye on it but its still worrying me that its delaying my healing or might become infected. Has this happened to anyone or does anyone have any advice on something different I should be doing because my doctor isn't being much help right now.
