    Allergy like spots around the surgical area

    ekenah posted:
    My husband had open surgery on his ankle when he broke it. After the surgery we notice red spots by the surgical area and my husband says sometimes they are itchy. I put some topical ointment but they keep appearing. I tell my husband to go back to the surgeon and ask about it as I suspect that they may have left some piece of surgical materials inside that is causing the allergy like spots in the the surgical area.
