Hello there. I can understand your concern but you need to see a doctor or if possible the same surgeon as soon as possible. Pain and redness at the site of the sutures indicate a infection. If not controlled now and delayed, can cause even bigger problem. Best is to not waste any time and consult him or any other general Surgeon regarding this as soon as possible. You can find best surgeons near you by using the practo app itself. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
