Hole in wound after otoplasty
You should make an urgent appointment to be seen by you surgeon so they can manage the situation.
It is important that the infection is treated adequately and the wound should be managed by the surgeon who carried out the surgery. If they are unavailable then you should see a suitably qualified and experienced surgeon.
