Infection is defined by redness, swelling, heat. If you have any drainage, I would culture the fluid. Are there any other forgein bodies or implants in the tip? Dissolvable sutures usually melt away by 4 -6 months. You may be a MRSA carrier, a nasal culture would diagnose this. Then as you "knock" the nose, you may get a micro taer which allows the bacteria to enter.
