Local complications in the field of a postoperative wound are not so rare, but fortunately take place in the majority without serious consequences. Often in the area of the postoperative suture, soreness and redness are noted. Following them from the sutured wound there can appear allocation, having various character: purulent, bloody, sacred, etc., that testifies to development of complications of inflammatory character, such as suppuration of seams and possible their divergence.
Why are sutures inflamed?
There are several main reasons for the development of the inflammatory process:
Symptoms of the development of inflammatory infiltration in the area of the postoperative suture appear after 3-6 days from the time of surgery and are as follows:
If you have these signs, you should not do self-medication, because only the doctor, knowing the nature of the operation and the superimposed seam, what materials were used for this, and how the healing process was proceeding, and taking into account the general condition of the person, will be able to choose a treatment corresponding to the severity of the process.
Moisture of the sutures may not have a connection with inflammation. In some cases, the so-called seroma develops in the postoperative region, which means a local congestion of serous fluid. Education is due to the fact that during the operation lymphatic capillaries intersect, and the lymph flowing out of them accumulates under the loose subcutaneous fat. The development of such a postoperative complication is more typical of fat people with excessively developed fat tissue.
The resulting seroma externally manifests itself as a discharge from the postoperative wound of a straw-colored liquid.

The main thing after the operation is that the seam does not fester. To do this, you will process it for several days while you are in the hospital. Usually this method is used: soak the previous bandage (if it has dried up) with hydrogen peroxide, then smear with alcohol, then - with greenery or iodine. If the surgeon does not see signs of inflammation of the wound or its suppuration, then for 3-4 days after the next alcohol-green treatment, he can not apply a bandage at all. Before discharge, you should tell how to take care of the rumen at home now, than to smear it.
