I had a c-section on the 18th and this was my second one. Now the incision (I had dissolvable stitches and with my first I had staples) is opening a little and I went and saw my Dr. She said it wasn't infected and she's glad I came in when I did cause if it did get infected she would have to open up the stitches and pack it with gauze (eww) but that mine didn't look that bad and that it should heal. She said put warm washcloths on it, dry it good, and then gave me some gauze to put over it. It does ooz a little pus and today there was a little red tinge and I think she just scared the crap out of me with the opening up cause now I'm scared. Is there anything else I can do? I'm flying out of state next Sat. cause I'm moving and I want to heal as quick as possible and I don't want to get an infection. She didn't tape it, is there some reason why or should I call her to request her to do it? She said over the phone before I went in that she may be able to just tape it but then never did. Any suggestions?
