Requires continued surveillance
Your photos shows redness in the tissues adjacent to wound as well as the sites of pinpoint drainage at the incision. This information alone is insufficient to definitively assign a causation to the described symptoms. If this is caused by an underlying suture, its extrusion and antibiotics will likely soon lead to resolution. Unfortunately, a more problematic underlying causation cannot be ruled out with the information provided. Continued scrutiny and frequent surveillance are necessary to optimize your care.
