Scab 6 months after rhinoplasty that has not healed? How can I ensure it heals? Is this normal to have a scab 6 months later?
I am 6 months post rhino and still have large scab inside my nose that bleeds when I clean my nose with a Q tip, is this normal?
Should I be worried? What can I do to get rid of them? How long are scabs meant to heal?
Dr. Azizzadeh’s Expert Answer
Typically, it should not take 6 months for the scab to heal after rhinoplasty. It sounds like suture exposure. Vaseline often allows it to heal, but I would recommend you see your doctor as it is difficult to make a diagnosis without an evaluation.
