Styptic Pencil on a Small Opening on my Tummy Tuck Incision?
I am 7 weeks post-op and have an occasional small spot appear and bleed a little on my tummy tuck incision. This has happened 3 times now and each time it is not larger than the head of a pencil eraser. Is there any harm in using a styptic pencil on the small spot to help it clot and heal more quickly? I know everyone will say ask my PS however I wanted the opinion of those on this site please.
These are tiny stitch abscesses; styptic pencil not advised.
