I had rhinoplasty done 6 days ago exactly, last night I used boiled water with a cotton bud to clean dark red blood clots around and a little inside the nostrils and put the drip pad under the nose. This afternoon while changing the drip pad, I noticed a drop sized pus! I'm very worried if it's infected. Kindly advice me what to do. Thank you

Hello. I would highly recommend that you contact your surgeon in order to detect if this indeed is an infection. I would say not to worry, as infection post rhinoplasty is pretty rare. Best of luck.
