Hello Nina Majid, thank you for asking with the HealthReplies.com team.
The red rash that appears postoperatively can be caused by several things, one of which is the occurrence of infection in the surgical wound. Most surgical wound infections appear within the first 30 days after surgery. This condition is caused due to a bacterial infection, and will cause symptoms such as fever, red rash, pain, tenderness, swelling, or pus formation. In addition, the red rash can also be caused by an allergic reaction from the plaster to close the gauze. Therefore, you should check with your doctor for further treatment. What you can do at home is: Keep the wound closed and make sure the area around the wound is clean, routinely perform wound care and control wounds to the doctor, maintain bodily hygiene, routinely wash hands, avoid smoking or alcoholic beverages.
If you experience severe abdominal pain, high fever, then immediately see a doctor.
