Incision Care

I had my 2 wk follow up visit from C5 ADR surgery yesterday. After having a reaction to the adhesive, the skin around my incision is red & “crepe-paper looking”. The APN asked me what I was using. Soap & water to clean but occasionally I will use hydrogen peroxide and then rosehip seed oil or vitamin e oil. She told me to stop, stop, stop. She doesn’t want me using the peroxide (said it kills good bacteria) and said to avoid putting any oils or lotions on or around the scar. No Mederma until after 2 months. I feel like it needs something, especially the skin that was so irritated from the adhesive.  What have you guys been using on or around your surgical incision?  



  • Moto, without being able to see the incision it would be impossible as well against the  forum rules for any of us to suggest what to use. I would strongly suggest to call your APN and ask her/him on what they would recommend. I know all members would like to have the most transparent surgical scar but any advice given here might lead to a infection of the surgical site resulting in definitely a worse scar. Please keep us posted , again I apologize we couldn’t be much help on this one.....David
