1 Answer:

Hello, good morning Getri.

Swelling in the surgical wound can be caused by several possibilities, including:

infection in the surgical wound, usually swelling will be accompanied by bleeding, or the wound becomes wet or does not dry, accompanied by an increase in body temperature, allergies, for example allergies to povidone iodine used, antibiotic base materials applied to surgical wounds, etc. irritation, such as irritation due to keloid plaster base material (excessive growth of scar tissue) if you mean by swelling of the scar in the form of a protruding part of the skin, following the shape of a surgical scar, reddish in color or like skin color. To be sure, it is recommended that you check directly with your doctor and not delay the examination, because the most feared thing is the occurrence of infection. The doctor will perform a physical examination and evaluate the surgical wound. Treatment is tailored to your diagnosis and condition. If the swelling is painful or you have a fever, you can take paracetamol while waiting to see your doctor.

That's all, hope it helps.
