I have a question for mom that had csections...

Ok I have had 2 previous csection, 2007 and 2009 I am pregnant with my 3rd, due in december. My problem is I have a pimple directly on my scar and it hurts to bend over, put clothes over top of it, and the pressure from it, its very uncompfortable. But I cant see it to try to pop it. What should i do? This pimple/lump is 1 inch wide and about half inch tall.

  • Can your SO, or friend, or mom take care of it with a sewing needle or pin? Clean the needle good with alcohol and go in from the side along the bottom and let it drain. If it doesn't heal get it looked at by your Dr. It sounds kind of big to just be a pimple and might be an infection of some sort.

  • buy one of those small mirrors. Have it checked by a dr, that doesn't sound right. Apply warm compresses to it. It should help draw it toward the surface. GL!

  • Honestly, if it were me I would go to the Doctor. It does not sound like a pimple if it is that big. It may be a boil.

  • OUCH! I would go get it looked at asap and not pester it. My friend had what she thought was a pimple on her lip and it got worse and worse and was a boil(sp?)
