The Caesarean Scar Is Festering And Smelling?
Good night I want to ask 1 month ago I went for a second child cesarean section one week after a caesarean. There was no problem, but after I held the first child, the wound felt sick and pus came out. I checked with the doctor. and it’s hard to form new tissues and then I was given anti-pain and anti-biotic drugs, but now the pain doesn’t taste anymore, just itchy and smells, what I want to ask is the danger or not, and can recover, I’m really worried. thank you, hopefully the doctor will reply and give a solution. Sorry, the explanation is too long, thank you again
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. The smelly pus arises because of the possibility of your wound being infected, and the position of the wound that goes into it makes it easier for bacteria to accumulate and grow. In addition, the lack of maintaining cleanliness of the body, low endurance and poor handling can also be a reason for your condition to worsen.
In overcoming this condition, in fact the most important thing is to do a re-examination. Because it is necessary to find out whether surgery is needed for the scar so that the pus can come out all, and whether it is enough with medication. It is also necessary to find out what the source of the infection is, and what can be done so that the wound can return to normal so that this condition does not recur in the future.
For that, you can check yourself to your obstetrician so far, or may also find an obstetrician at another hospital. This is quite important because even if you only have enough medication, antibiotics should not be purchased and used without a doctor's supervision. So for now, all you can do is keep the wound area dry and clean, regularly change underpants, increase protein consumption to speed up tissue recovery, and see a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
