Fat necrosis can lead to protracted wound healing after breast reduction.
Sorry you are having trouble. Most likely this is some suture that has not dissolved. Since you have failed antibiotic courses it may not be an infection at all, or it could be a T.B. skin infection as they come on after two months. Ask your doctor about a culture for this, and stay out of hot tubs. Otherwise, things like this are common and eventually heal in. All the best, "Dr. Joe"
