    Okay....open excision in July.... Pack cleaned and needed one round of antibiotics....sealed and healed by November 14th..... Just went through night time clean routine... And found scar had minor tear... A few drops of blood... Is this normal or should I be seeking medical advice.... Barely any pink but threw me for a loop. No pain no redness...can these scars tear this much after?

    Yes. The area can be weak for many months after surgery.

    The nurses in my area seem to advise if any dimension of the opening is more than 10mm it should be packed

    I would try getting silver nitrate done at first but if it keeps redoing it like it's a superficial tear, I would go see a wound care specialist to get that last tiny bit of healing done.....
