Allergy after Rhinoplasty, what to do?
for your question and photos. It certainly is an allergic reaction to the adhesive. Your on the right medications. It may be that some adhesive is still on your nose. You need to remove it completely and it sometimes it takes a 3-10 days for the inflammatory cells to go away and thus redness will follow their leaving. Discuss your concerns with your rhinoplasty surgeon. Good Luck! But remember be patient and continue your meds. It will be ok in time.
