Red bump after suture double eyelid surgery? (photo)

I had DST double eyelid surgery 4 weeks ago. For 4 days, I have had a reddish bump on my eyelid after rubbing my eyelid. The bump is a bit itchy at times. Usually it feels okay. The red seems to subside in the mornings, but gets a little bit worse in the evenings. I am taking antibiotics and putting antibiotic cream on the bump. I feel like it is getting better but should I be worried? Could this be a suture that ripped or is spitting? Please help! Thanks!

Best to return to the operative surgeon for treatment ASAP. This could become an infection. And the area is dangerous to have infections.//
