Abscess: Go to you doctor, and get the pus drained completely and antibiotics to clear the infection to cure. Youv will also need at least wound (pus) culture.

EZ does it.: When absorbable sutures dissolve, they do so as you describe. However, if there is true pus with increasing redness, swelling, pain and warmth with a worsening wound, then infection is likely. If not, then gentle cleansing with soap and water daily and applying an antibiotic ointment to the incision daily will help. If it looks worse, get back to the doc for their evaluation. ...Read more
