Hi,

The hole needs to be checked and closed appropriately if still open. That might be causing the repeated attacks of the infections.

No need to panic, this should be a minor corrective surgery if the examination reveals the same.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
