I'm 8 weeks PP, same I have a overhang and I'm still healing! It's very frustrating, I've been on 3 antibiotics and now I'm on a cream antibiotic.
I have the same problem im 4 weeks postpartum and they told me its because the stitches are melting and sometimes they leave a wound which can take a while to heal !
Mines like this, they said it’s not infected it’s just taking longer to heal. They’ve given me iodine and a dressing for it as im unable to leave it dry out (im sure most newborn mums are) it’s impossible cos we all still have the overhang at this stage regardless of our weight and the warm weather doesn’t help as it’s just gonna get sweaty lmao
My c section scar went like this at the start, I ended up having this yellow thing put on it and covered with a plaster for 4 weeks (I’m also a big girl) please be careful using a fan or hairdryer to dry because it can blow bacteria in) x
Go to the doctors they’ll give you antibiotics. Mine started off like this and it was infected, I took a course of antibiotics and now it’s all fully healed 🥰 xx

I say go to the doctors they will inspect to see if it’s infected or good to go but C-section scars usually heal over 6months completely x
Whilst waiting for the doctor, I used warm boiled water with salt and used a cotton pad to clean it. By the next day it helped dry it out xx
