I had my daughter may 31st via C-section and received a silver dressing to cover the incision. It just now started falling off tonight. should I be concerned or is it ok for it to come off? Thank you!
Congrats in your baby. I'm not sure what a silver dressing is but since its been over a week I'm sure its okay they didnt even put a dressing on mine
They took my dressing off the day after I had mine so I'm saying yes. I'm pretty sure they are made to fall off. I don't see why they left it on though, since air flow to the incision helps promote healing and prevent yeast from growing and infecting the incision.

The silver dressing is just something to help prevent infection, I believe. Not really sure. I was kind of out of it to ask any questions. I had more questions about my baby than anything! I hope it's alright to come off lol. o.O Thank you! She is a blessing! So beautiful!
I took my dressing off yesterday, less than 24 hours after my cesarean. You're fine
