Rhinoplasty stitch infection

Rhinoplasty stitch infection

Hi, it's my postop 8th day and I noticed yellowness around my stitches. I am still on antibiotics (I'm supposed to take them for 10days). I texted my surgeon about it he said it's ok but I felt like he was kinda careless. So I wanted to ask here if it's okay, is it an infection, or what caused that yellowness? Thank you.

Hi leslypike, it seems like you are having an infection around your stitches. You need to clean your stitches 3 times a day with povidone iodine and apply polyfax skin ointment or any other broad spectrum antibacterial cream available in your country. You also need to either increase the dose of your existing antibiotic for 3 more days and if it does not help, you need to change the antibiotic and take a second course for 7 days. All the best !
