I'm Spitting a Stitch 18wks Post Op from a BR, and It's Infected. How Can I Treat It Until my PS Gets Back in Town? (photo)
I am 18 wks post op and spitting a stitch. My PS is out of town; I have an appt with him in 6 days. I visited my primary care manager in the mean time, and he has me on keflex 500mg 4x daily. He told me apply a hot compress for 20 min twice daily, wash with dial soap, pour a cap of peroxide over the area, dab on some neosporin, and cover with band aid until my ps says otherwise. He admitted that as a pcm he didn't have much experience with surgical sites. Is the the correct advice?
