Hello Mrs. Nur :)
Thank you for the question.
In the surgical procedure, the surgeon will do some manipulation of structures in the body such as the skin and the tissues inside, including the operation of pen placement on the bone. The doctor will dissect the tissue, can make an incision with a scalpel, or other surgical instrument. This is done in a sterile way and with various procedures to prevent possible infections in the surgical wound. However, the possibility of infection is still possible. This is influenced by germ factors in the patient-medical officer-medical instrument environment, duration of surgery, type of surgery, and patient's disease history.
Surgical scar infections are generally caused by bacteria, such as Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, or Preudomonas bacteria. Infection in surgical scars usually appears within 30 days after surgery. This infection can be in the form of superficial infections (skin area), deep (has reached the muscles), and organs and organ cavities (in organs / cavities of the operating organ). This infection is usually marked by a reddish rash around the surgical wound, fever, pain, swelling, bleeding / pus, and odor.
You should immediately consult a surgeon or orthopedic specialist to be able to assess your surgical scar. The doctor will determine further treatment, such as treating an infected wound, giving antibiotics either taken or only smeared, or may require repeat surgery procedures, depending on the severity of the festering surgical scar. This is done to avoid complications such as the spread of infection to the tissues under the skin, throughout the body, or cause scarring.
Here are things you can do at home to deal with these scars:
Clean the wound with running water and mild soap, can also use salt water (saline). Dry the wound and apply an antibiotic ointment that the doctor recommends. Wrap the wound with sterile gauze. Avoid using cotton because the fiber will be left in the scar. Fill your intake of foods rich in protein to speed up the healing process of wounds, such as eggs, meat and cork fish. Hope this helps :)
