My Cesarean Hole Is Hollow, Festering And Has A Bad Odor, Is It Dangerous?
I just had a caesarean, now it’s been a month after a caesarean, but lately my wounds are runny and smell bad, when I try to see the way I photograph it turns out there are 2 holes in the wound, no pain, just a little itching.

For a long time or a wound that does not improve after more than 2 weeks, the wound is caused by an interruption of the wound healing process. When a wound heals a long time ago it appears, the wound condition is often accompanied by complaints of wounds that are wet, runny, sometimes pus around the wound, redness, itching, or pain. Therefore, chronic wound care must be treated immediately to prevent the process of inflammation that does not get better and cause uncomfortable complaints in patients.
Some of the conditions below can cause long-lasting sores, such as:
1. an infected wound
2. wounds that are not treated properly
3. High humidity area around the wound
4. wound contamination with water
5. contamination of wounds with non-hygienic material
6. open wounds that are not sewn or closed
In connection with your question, the existence of complaints of old wounds that do not heal can be caused by the presence of moisture in the folds of the skin in the injured area. When your skin folds cover the wound, the moisture in the area around your skin folds can cause prolonged wound healing, and increase the risk of germ contamination from this skin fold area. Therefore, the wound care recommended by your doctor should be continued, and so that the watery and smelly wound can get better and dry soon. Condition your skin folds not to cover your wounds, and cover the wound with sterile gauze to prevent environmental contamination. In addition, open the gauze every day, and then treat your wound again with a sterile gauze again. Or do all wound care instructions from the information given by your doctor.
That is the info we can convey.
