Do you think this is infected?

I had an operation (tendon transfer) on my foot 76 days ago. The scars on the right hand side of my foot have healed beautifully, whereas the scar on the left side is incredibly painful to touch and discharge is still emitting from it. I’ll add a picture of the scar causing me problems: 

Thanks for helping me!

    The area around the wound appears to be red and slightly swolen. That appears quite likely to be infected. Have it checked out.

  • try like a Vitamin E cream does not look infected though

    Its infected, amputation is the key. Use a red hot butter knife and bite down on some ice but only on a tuesday as monday is inconsistent and unsure of itself.

    If it were me, I'd go to the urgent doctor.

    Yes, that is infected. Call your doctor's office and see if they want to see you or what they suggest.
