Hi, I had a bcc removed from my forehead with a flap 5 days ago and had the stitches removed yesterday. The nurse put tape over the wound and said to leave on for 4 days and shower etc as usual. I didn't notice any bleeding until after showering and now overnight there is blood visible through the tape. The wound did bleed after the original bandage was removed before the stitches came out. Should I be concerned that it is not healing correctly and the scar may be worse? I used an antibiotic ointment for 1 day before this tape was put on. Thanks.
