Just had a c section 4wks ago..Is it possible for oneside of the incision to be infected and the other side not?

How long does it take for a c-section incision to completely closed and once it's completely closed can it still get infected or re-open?
Varies: It takes about a month to get half the strength back in the skin at the site of the cesarean incision. It takes about 6 months to get full strength. The skin incision begins to grow together and heal in just a few hours but during the first two weeks it would be relatively easy to disrupt the incision. Once closed and healed for about a week the risk of infection is very very low. ...Read more

It can be hard to get rid of. Also, call the birth hospital's nursery for the name of a lactation consultant who can help you. Gas & spitting up may not be related, but it seems both of you are uncomfortable. You're a trooper! ...Read more

My c section incision has an infection. I've been on antibiotics for 7 days and still have the infection. What happens next?
