Incision infected help please

Hey one of my incisions are infected it's red and there is a bump and puss is coming out. Waiting for my doctor to call me back. But really upset I have already had three surgeries because infected inside. Has anyone been through this. Should I just go to ER. I don't want it to become bad. Or am I infected inside again and it's coming out from there. This really sucks any advise is appreciated. Thanks Jen

Hi, I had an infected incision site, I found the heating pad helped the drainage and leaving the site open to the air. But if this has happen already I would call your dr or go straight to er if you are having a fever as well remeber anything over 100.0 is a fever. I wish you the best of luck!!! Blessed be !

Re: Incision infected help please

Thank you and my incision hasn't been infected before I had ecoli in my body cavity from first surgery and almost didnt make it and they had to go in two more times and I have nothing left inside. So I'm worried about this. Can you have a infection in your cavity and it try to push out the incision? My incisions where fine before this is just a new thing happening. Did they give you antibiotics?

Re: Incision infected help please

I am just getting over an infected incision site. I have to cleanse the incision twice a day with hibaclense, and the Dr. gave me 875mg augmentin twice a day. It has helped greatly and after 4 days the site's redness has gone and no more nasty drainage. Bless your heart, I feel for you. Hope you get the infection under control soon! Thoughts and prayers!

Re: Incision infected help please

Thanks ladies. Talked to my doc and he wants to see me tomorrow before he does anything. He said as many problems I have had the antibiotics probably will not work. So I go in tomorrow and will figure it out from there. He said it was very unusual to have an infection in my incision 3 weeks out. So I don't know what that means. Thanks for listening
