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?
