Question

C-section

I had a c-section 3 and a half weeks ago. On the right hand side of the cut, I have an infection because of a skin tag that was left there. I noticed this morning that the hole is getting bigger and more infected. I am cleaning it with surgical spirits everyday and leave it to dry before I get dressed. What else can I do? Thank you.

Dear Tasha
Put some Bactroban ointment on it. If there is pus coming from deep under the wound you should rather see your doctor as you may need antibiotics per mouth to take
