Hi, thank you for your question. If you are still wearing a compression garment, it is possible you have an allergy to the fabric or you may have an infection. It is in your best interest to schedule a follow up appointment with your plastic surgeon to be sure. I hope you get relief soon!

Itching and redness

I think that if you have new onset redness around your incisions, you need to be seen to make sure you do not have an infection.
