I'm 4 weeks PP. Since I had my c/s, one of the corners of the incision has had a little nub sticking out of it (it looks and feels like a hard zit). I figured it was the sutures poking out, and my doctor never said a word about it, so I didn't worry. Fast forward to this past weekend, the area around it grew bright red, inflamed, and hurt to the touch. Last night, I noticed that it was leaking pus. I went to the doctor today thinking it was infected. I saw a nurse practitioner who said it was no big deal - pus/drainage is a good sign, its probably an infected hair follicle but not bad enough to warrant antibiotics. She sent me home with instructions to use a warm compress/heating pad a few times a day to draw out the pus, and to keep an eye on it.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this?? I guess since my doctor isn't worried, I shouldn't be either, but the area really hurts and I feel like it's worse than it seems (though that's probably my anxiety speaking). I go back in two weeks for my 6-week PP appt, and I'm seeing a different doctor than the one I saw today, so I'm definitely going to bring it up with her.
