First c section was Thursday night. I have a little light yellow discharge on the left half. I called the doctor on call, he said put peroxide on it. Those with experience, what would you recommend?

I would watch it and see what happens. Signs of bad infection (for which you need to be seen) include warm/hot to the touch, and bad smell. I agree with the doctor that peroxide is a good way to clean the incision and hopefully clear up anything small. Just watch it and see what happens and demand to be seen if it gets worse.


G/L and congrats on your new little one!
