Small abscess at c-sec site

This morning I discovered a small abscess at the corner of my c-sec site. It's been almost 7 months since I had my baby. Could it just be an ingrown hair, or should I be a bit more worried? Has anyone else experienced this?

  • Go to the dr today! I had a friend that 2 weeks post c-section she ignored a little red infected spot. She thought it could wait until her next checkup appointment. Days later she died from the infection. With c-sections, what looks like a small infection can be large on the inside. If you get put on an antibiotic now, then it'll resolve itself fast and everything will be fine. If you put it off, it can get bad fast.

  • Thanks for the concern! I read a few websites, and am pretty convinced it's just an ingrown hair. HOWEVER, I did make an drs appt for Monday.

    Thanks again!
