  • Do you have a fever? I would call and get it checked out ASAP. If it is getting infected (or already infected) you don't want to wait. That kind of infection can eventually lead to Sepsis and you really don't want that. Good Luck. I hope you feel better soon.

  • Mine was also red for quite a while with no infection but i'd def get it checked out just incase. Have you been taking showers or baths?? I soaked in a bath once during my recovery and it made it alot worse afterwards

  • If it's bothering you that badly, it probably is a good idea to get it checked out.

    Best Wishes, and congrats on your new arrival!
