mucus Oozing from incision site of c sections

I have 1 horizontal scar on my lower stomach below my belt button. Thru that scar I've had 3c sections and 1 complete hysterectomy. The lasted surgery was in 1995, so it's goingredients 15 years. Underneath the belly skin folks has started seeping. I thought it was at 1st where it was just sweat. I noticed when I went to clean it that it was more mucus and slime. I dried it off but it came back like a stinky skews

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

The draining material should be cultured and if its suspected to be pus then antibiotics should be initiated promptly. The results of the culture would be used to tailor the antibiotics further , if required.

Wishing you best of health
