so I'm 7 weeks post c tomorrow. had a fairly textbook recovery, no issues or infections or anything odd.
I'm feeling pretty much back to normal, no pain really anymore and am back to must daily activities (excluding any heavy lifting).
the incision had steri strips over it that have started to come off. the gp last week at my 6 week check up said to just let them fall off on their own. she said the incision site looked fine and was happy with the healing.
last couple of days I've noticed a little patch of red skin underneath the incision, right in the middle. it's only small but it's noticeable. skin looks red and is like a raised bump. there's no pain when I press it, it's just this red bumpy patch. there's no pus or anything suspicious along the incision directly above it. just this red patch. I've been watching it to see if it gets bigger or starts to hurt but it's stayed the same.
I've consulted dr Google and cellulitis seems to be the closest match however I have no other symptoms, no fever or any of the other symptoms that usually go with infection.
has anyone had this or have any idea what it might be? should I be concerned? I'm guessing I'll have to go to the gp but really feeling lazy at the moment.
any help much appreciated!
