For the second time in the last month, my C-section incision/scar (almost 14 months old now) is inflamed, painful, and very infected/oozing. I went to my OB today and she put me on mupirocin topical 3x a day until the infection clears. My C-section incision was closed over numerous hair follicles, so starting at 3-4 weeks PP I was pulling dead hairs out of it and dealing with pain and bleeding. When the scar was fully healed over, the hairs and inflammation stopped, but as soon as I got pregnant it's like the scar was put under stress because it started hurting again. About a month ago various knots of scar tissue began raising up, becoming very inflamed, forming whiteheads (TMI), bursting, bleeding, tearing, ugh, it's awful. My current OB thinks that since my C-section was an emergency (done at another hospital), it was not done as 'neatly' as could be done under controlled circumstances. It's not the surgeon's faults--I just scar really thickly, and now knowing it, my OB feels that she could do a better job reconstructing it. I was planning to do a VBAC this time around, but sadly am now leaning toward a C-section so that my scars, both internal and external, can be redone properly. What would you do? The pain and inflammation are absolutely awful, and I fear this will keep happening unless the scar is re-opened and closed better.
