Brief Answer: Detailed below. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Can you please attach a photo of it? It would be much easier to help you. What kind of surgery have you had and when was it done? Sometimes after years from the surgery, stitches from tissues under the skin start irritate them. As a result inflammation or even a discharge from the wound can appear. The best way is to ask a surgeon to find this stitch and remove it. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
