Had a surgery for rhinitis. What is the scab on nose?

I recently had surgery for rhinitis about 2 yrs ago. i never went back for the check up after the gauze was removed. and now i have a big scab in my nose where it was done. and under the scab is a medium sized hole and fluid comes out..!! I was wondering should i get it looked at.? If it might be serious ? or if i can do something at home.? Thanks For Your Time.

Hi, thanks for your query.

Perhaps you had a surgery 2 weeks ago.

You have not gone for follow up post surgery.

The fluid can be either nasal discharge or due to infection.
I suggest to get it checked by your operating doctor to rule out something serious rather than home remedies.

hope this helps you.
