Album DescriptionI've gotten a lot of questions and asked for a lot of help and feedback about the abscessed suture I developed. When it happened I found little to no information about it and I couldn't seem to find any pictures as a point of comparison. So, I decided to post mine. I hope if anyone else find themselves in this situation that this helps.
Also, I've been treating the area (under my PS's directions). I've been using peroxide on the area once or twice daily, allowing it to dry and fill again (there is a hole underneath the scab that reveals itself when the scab is wet and the underside of the scab melts away), then covering the area loosely with sterile 4 x 4 gauze.
The abscess developed around day 11 post-op.
