Uncertain: I cannot tell why without seeing it. Seems unlikely that an incision would not be fully healed at 3 months, unless there are underlying health issues or Prednisone use. Also seems unlikely that there would be irritation from a suture this long, but it is possible. Please see your surgeon for an evaluation.
