Old cesarean scar opening

Why does my old cesarean section scar open? It's very painful, oozes and reseals sometimes? I've had 2 c-sections, last one is 13 years ago.

Welcome to this forum.
I presume your scar is not properly healed up or even could be infected.
You need regular dressing as well as even antibiotics.
Meet your Doctor. He/she could advice you more precisely after an examination and if needed you might need a wound swab testing.
