What Is the Best Treatment or Solution for Opened and Bleeding Incisions?

0 votes
I am 4 weeks out and I thought I was recovering already. Located at the top on my right breast, right exactly at the line that connects the areola to the incision under the breast, it suddenly opened and started to bleed. It does not look like a hole but the incision completely opened up. Although it did not bleed profusely, it has been going on for 24 hours and blood still comes out. To treat this, I put butterfly stitches on it and took Neosporin and it seems to work. I also consulted with my doctor and he removed my tape but there are still scabs on parts of my incision and they keep bleeding after I take a shower or when I sweat. Is this an infection? Do you think this happened because my breasts are always moist since I am based in Florida? It keeps sticking to my sports bra and reopening. Any advice or suggestions to treat my incisions better?
