Why havent my dissolving stitches dissolved yet?
It is just taking a little longer. If it takes more time to dissolve, there might be an underlying infection or pus collection.
 
My husband recently had stitches on his toe. It has been about 3 weeks now and its getting red and starting to pus up near the stitches.
Thanks for contacting HCM. I am sorry to hear that your husband stitches were placed 3 weeks ago and they are now becoming infected. Stitches should be removed 7-10 days after being placed. From your description it sound like the stitches are now infected and he may need antibiotics in addition to having the stitches removed. I recommend you seek medical attention.
