Recovery support: Blood blister can occur after surgical incision, usually from the tape adhesive and/or glue. This can be tender, should be kept clean and dry.

See your doc ASAP: The itching and the blistering suggest that this could be an allergic contact dermatitis, perhaps to the adhesive from the bandages. But anytime there is an issue going on after surgery, it is very important to see the surgeon right away. Infection could also present similarly and must be excluded. ...Read more
I had a hernia operation about 10 weeks ago. I just noticed a blood blister on the incision site. I also have a raised temperature (38.5 celcius).
I applied Neosporin to an incision per my doctors instruction. I now have red burning skin that has small oozing blisters. Is there something I can do?
Hard to know: A bit more information would help, but it seems that either a serious infection has developed and you need a course of antibiotics or you have a contact allergic sensitivity to a component of the neosporin (relatively common). Has this happened with neosporin before? If the latter, then topical corticosteroid may help (but it would not if this is an infection). Good luck! ...Read more

'to cut' biopsy: 'incisional biopsy' literally means to 'cut out some tissue' to get a good sample of a particular lesion (usually skin but can be any biopsy). An excisional biopsy is similiar but this refers to removing the whole lesion with normal tissue around it (as in a small dark mole removed). Biopsies are sent to a pathologist who 'reads' the slides under a microscope looking for abnormal cells/diseases. ...Read more
What's the question?: Yes it's possible to get a hematoma in a hysterectomy incision. If it's not enlarging, we usually leave it alone. It will "tamponade" itself off and stop growing, then slowly resorb. If it's enlarging, the incision would be opened and explored to tie off the bleeding vessel. ...Read more
Keep it dry: You shouldn't have to do much. One of the best things to do to help a cesarean scar heal well is to keep the area dry. That doesn't mean you can't shower, but pat the area dry with a towel. And if you have a belly that hangs over the scar, consider blowing a hair dryer on cool against your skin to keep the skin from getting too moist. ...Read more
Healing process.: Whenever tissue is subject to trauma, such as incisions made during surgery, the body initiates an inflammatory response as part of the healing process. As part of this process histamine is released. It is the histamine which causes the wound to itch. So itching of the wound is a good sign. If you find the itching is unbearable, you can take an antihistamine such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for relief. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Not documented: There are some spurious reports that vitamin e cream could reduce surgical scars. I'm not familiar with any attribution to coconut oil. You should keep the scar out of sunlight for 6-9 months after surgery to allow the scar to mature without sunlight influence. A simple 30 sunblock would suffice. Good luck. ...Read more
Varies: Very quick if it is a laparoscopic procedure and a bit longer for an open procedure. ...Read more
Ignore it: It is likely to settle down itself. If you need to apply some moisiturizer so that there is no dryness there. If it is bad put some ice wrapped in tissue paper and keep it there for a few minutes at a time. This is a minor problem and will settle down soon. ...Read more
Time to heal: Your surgeons cut went through many layers of tissue. Each layer heals at a different rate. While skin heals quickly, the deep tough connective tissue (fascia) takes a lot longer. You should minimize strenuous activity for at least 12 weeks and progress slowly. Remember, even when finally healed, that area will never have more than 80% of its strength return. ...Read more
