Thanks for writing to us.
Due to the high vascularization ( blood supply ) and innervation , it is normal after suturing to develop swelling and mild bleeding, especially taking in consideration the lip, that often moved. I would advice you regular cleaning suture lines with antiseptic to minimize crust formation and prevent infection. To reduce swelling you may try oral tablets antihistamines such cetirizine
, plus continue diclofenac
( that also reduce pain and swelling), and antibiotic to prevent infection. Avoid hot and spicy meal and any mechanical action of the lip. Review with your Doctor after few days ( generally sutures can be removed after 7 days ). All this measures will help you and will improve your condition.
I wish you good luck and speedy recovery.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
