Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
This is Dr. David
every patient is different
you really should call up your surgeon and let them know you have redness around your staples
I'm not sure if you have an infection there or not.
the doctor at the walk in clinic apparently though so, but they are not surgeons there
what antibiotic were you given?
signs of infection are redness, swelling, pain and warmth.
would you like to upload a clear jpg photo of the redness around your staples which you think is due to infection?
do you see the "add file" link?
