Anyone else ever have a reaction to the dissolving stiches used with c-section?

My doc told me today that I'm having a reaction to the stiches and that it will take up to 3 months for it to clear up! Yuck!! (I guess that's how long it takes for them to completely dissolve) Anyone else have this? Did anything help? He told me to just clean it with peroxide twice a day...

  • No, but I did have a reaction to the horrible hospital tape they use. It took months to completely come off and I was all red and itchy. I did have marks where the strips were put on for a while, too. Are you sure it's not an infection? I got infected and had to be hopsitalized 8 days after my section.
