Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Blood or bleeding is also possible with the infection.
First of sall, you should aply pressure over the area to stop the bleeding.
Ofcourse, reapply the bandage after the bleeding stops.
if the bleeding is heavy not stoppable by pressure, then you will need to go to the local hospital for further evaluation.
Mild bleeding is not concerning.
But heavy bleding is.
ok, also around the stoma its red and bit raised around the hole
That is expected also from the infection.
okay, so i started antibiotics yesterday so should it start getting better in a few days?
and if it doesnt what do u suggest i do?
yes it should.
if it does not, then you will need to see your consultant.
He may have to drain the area and enforce the skin support.
but why poor service after mentioning thanks --
Please reply with any furthr questions.
