Has this incision reopened or become infected? (photos)
Doctor Answers 2
This incision does not appear to be infected. Some areas heal quicker than others, this is normal. Avoid submerging it in water, such as hot tubs, pools, or baths until it completely closes. In the mean time, a thin layer of antibacterial ointment is all I suggest.
Hope this helps,

Needs more time
This incision is slowly healing and will need more time.
Keep it covered with a bandaid and some antibiotic ointment.
