What causes change in skin color after a skin graft?
User rating for this question
I had a skin graft done on my nose on Dec 10th. The colour has changed from dark red to beige in the centre as well as on one of the sides . I had been given cefadroxil (500mg) twice daily for 5 days after the surgery. I"m wondering if the change in color is due to infection and do I need to take more cefadroxil?
