Answer to your Health Question

Question:

I had a c-section on the nineteenth of February, and today noticed half of the scar was red and painful, and about 2 inches above the cut was a tiny raised red bump that is extremely painful.

Are the two connected? And what could it be?

Answer:

Recovering from a cesarean delivery at first, the scar will be slightly raised, puffy, and darker than the rest of your skin, but it'll start to shrink significantly within six weeks of surgery.

A c-section incision is only 4 to 6 inches long and about 1/8 inch wide. As the incision site continues to heal, your scar will more closely match your skin color and will narrow to about 1/16 inch wide. It might be itchy while it's healing.

A bump c-section scar usually will be gone completely after about 2 months.

It may be just fluid that your body have to absorb.
