 C-Section Question

My scar was healing nicely. Then I noticed I was tender at the one end of my scar. I checked and part of it is all red.

Should I get it checked?

Did anyone else have problems 9 months later?

If you arent in pain and there is no puss or open sores, Id say you are fine.
However if you feel any discomfort or not quite right, then get it checked

It could be something like an ingrown hair, but I'd get it checked out just in case it's more serious.

Mine is still slightly red and raised and itchy too, but if it wasn't red previously and it is now than I would call too.

I would get this checked out, just to be on the safe side. At 11 months, my incision has healed to the point where even my husband has a hard time making it out. So any time someone mentions that their incision is suddenly red or changing, it makes me think that making a quick appointment really can't hurt. I'm sure it's nothing!

the edges of my scar are raised and red. while the middle is smooth and just a white line. it's normal. it's not really sore or anything, but if it's all of a sudden painful, i'd get it checked out, just in case, better safe than sorry
