Don't worry; moist wounds heal
Suture reactions are common. Keeping it moist with a dressing in place changed once or twice a day. Medihoney is a great products as is Anasept gel. Silvadene and some of the antibiotic ointments have been shown to retard healing. It will all in from the inside out. Periodic mechanical or sharp debridement by your PS will also facilitate healing. The scar may be a hair wider but can always be revised.
Wound under my incision is opening up. How should it be treated.
I would ask the opinion of your Plastic Surgeon, not that of the nurse, even if she is a highly trained nurse in Plastic Surgery
Good luck to you.
