Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

You can consult a general surgeon or a plastic surgeon for this.You should have taken oral antibiotics to prevent any infection and also taken a tetanus injection.Pain can be there in the initial phases because of healing of tissues since there are stitches.So nothing much to worry esp if there is no pus oozing out or you get fever.

Hope this answers your query,if you have any further questions ,kindly write back to us.
