Yesterday was the 7th day after my septoplasty and this bump appeared right under one of the dissolvable stitches.I started putting an antibiotic cream the day before yesterday ( it was bethametasone + fusidic acid).It is getting bigger and I´m afraid it doesn´t go away.My doctor is on vaccation and the next appointment is the 21 April. I don´t know if until then this will get worse. Can someone give me a little idea of what this might be? White bump-red circle Dissolvable stiches-green circle

-Usually the doctor should have someone to cover him for emergencies when he is out of town
-I wouldn't worry too much about this, dissolvable sutures dissolve from inflammation, so this bump could just be that
-Try using just a double antibiotic ointment instead of the beclomethasone
-See if you can at least talk to your doctor over the phone for more specific info
