    Your surgeon should examine you in this case, but this is probably an allergic reaction due to the adhesive placed for the tape and splint.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

I agree - you need to see your surgeon about this. A bit of steroid cream will help. Mostly self-limiting.

Allergic reaction?

Based upon your description, it may be that you developed an allergic reaction to the tape or glue.   Best to be seen by your surgeon.

I would make sure you are seen by your Dr. It can be an allergy to the splint, an infection, or a hypersensitivity among multiple other causes.

I would recommend contacting your surgeon right away and see what he/she advises. An exam would really be necessary to provide you with the best advice, and they will be able to best determine the cause of your irritation. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
