I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. For questions concerning anything other than Minnie's health please contact***@******.***. I regret that I'm not allowed to communicate with customers by phone. To answer you directly, infections associated with skin sutures are best addressed with a systemic antibiotic and if that antibiotic doesn't suffice the sutures need to be removed because they can cause a foreign body reaction followed by bacterial infection. The Quadritop and Benedictine won't be harmful but can't penetrate into the incision where infection may be hiding. In general, post-op complications should be attended to by the surgeon who should recheck Minnie gratis for you. Feel free to disregard my post if you've already had Minnie attended to. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
