Does This Mole Removal Look Like It’s Healing Properly? It’s
In my opinion,the healing in this wound may be not proper. The picture shows,that it needs to be cleaned & dressed. Perhaps it may be infected & may need a course of antibiotics. You may be needed a culture & sensitivity test of the wound scraping or wound fluid,if any.
Normally there must be pain,swelling & redness around an infected wound.Your plastic surgeon is right in telling that some redness may persist around the wound,even without infection.However,if any wound does not show signs of healing within 4 weeks& complete healing is not there within 8 weeks, then it may be termed as delayed healing or a chronic wound & in such cases, medical intervention may be advised.Still,prior to this, you may try these home remedies.
