  • It happens all the time. That's why c sections should only be done when needed. Make sure you call your doctor before you go to the er. You can get infections at the hospital that don't respond to antibiotics. Just walking through the door you are at risk of getting infections.

  • lol, same as the poster above me.... it happened to my sister and her scar looks horrible too. but the antibiotics took care of the infection. did you have staples? she had staples and one of them ripped and that's how she got the infection
