I Had my Rhinoplasty a Month Ago and out of Nowhere, Where my Stitches Were or Still Are I Have Terrible Pain and Its Swollen?

I can't even deal with the pain...is it an infection? Or is the suture stuck under skin that grew over it and its rubbing I side my wound?! Please help

It would be helpful if you sent photos. You should see your surgeon.  It is possible that this is a localized infection or suture reaction.
