Bleeding from openings at incision site post c-section. Is there any home treatment?

I am 4 mo post c section. I have 2 small (2mm ea) openings at my incision site. They had previously been closed ( though had taken about 8 wks to close at the same spots) No pain, no redness, no puss and no temp - just bleeding since last night. Is it necessary to be seen by doctor to close these spots. Is there some home treatment I can do. Presently using recoveron -n with gauze over site.

Thanks for your query.
It does not sound as if there is any major complication with the scar site.
if there is no pain / redness, and no discharge, then do not worry.
One possibility is scar site endometriosis, particularly as they bled.
Yes, you definitely need to see a doctor to ensure that nothing needs to be done.
Take care.

You require to attend your doctor for necessary steps like proper dressing, antibiotics as if this wound is not healed there is a chance spreading infection inside.
Ok and take care.
