Prep Solution: I am guessing that you are describing the betadine-based prep favored by some surgeons to sterilize the skin before surgery; this wears off over the next week. A few weeks after surgery, the area around an incision can look yellow-orange as a "black-and-blue" area returns to normal--likewise, no worries.
