what is happening to me?!!
I had labiaplasty 3 wks ago, May 27, 2010. I look SCARY. Please check my pics and give me your guess what is going on. No docs in my area have any clue when they have looked! I have been to FOUR so far! I am on Keflex and Flagyl. No itching, no discharge, slight pain on perimeter of open areas where suture line came apart, no fever, no baths - only showers - since surgery, using Hibiclens and Bactrim and polysporin, keeping area dry and open to air when possible for last couple of days.

You have some wound break down and what appears to be an allergic type irritation from the antibiotcs creams. Stop using the current creams. Get aquaphor and apply that a few times a day to keep the wound from drying out.
Also speak to your surgeon ASAP.

Any fix? I might know one!  May 10, 2011 1:56 AM
