  • Honestly, that doesn't look good. It looks like it is trying to reopen. I would go get it checked out.

  • Looks like it's infected..... Is it hot and sore?
    It shouldn't be open like that, not when the rest of it is healing so nicely.

    See a nurse / Doc... it needs to be looked at :)

  • I've never had a C-Section but that doesn't look like it should be seperating like that.

  • NO mine looked exactly the same, the doc said it was just a deeper cut spot that would take longer to heal. As long as its not gooey or red its most likely not infected, you can call and have them look at it, they ended up taping mine shut so it would heal better.

  • I dont think it looks infected. I also don't think it should be opening up like that either. You should call the dr before it turns into an infection. Congrats on the new baby!

  • To me it looks like it may have separated, but is healing over again. Is it oozing at all? If it's healing over I would keep putting Neosporin (or other antibacterial ointment) on it or a scar healing solution to make sure it heals quickly.
