Allergy like spots around the surgical area

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.
