Post-op Bleph Abscess?
I Had Upper Blepharoplasty 6 Weeks Ago. Three weeks ago I had pus collect under the incision line on my right eyelid. The nurse drained the pus and said that it's probably due to a retained stitch. A week later the pus returned and the doctor placed me on PCN for 7 days. It seemed to respond nicely to the antibiotic until one week after d/c the med and the pus has returned again. Doctor felt it was either abcess from sutures although he felt unlikely since it's so far out from surgery or makeup infecting incision line. What to do?
