It is just taking a little longer. If it takes more time to dissolve, there might be an underlying infection or pus collection.
What does white skin next to recent stitches indicate?
If there is no pain at the stitches site and fever,do not worry.

Then,there will be oozing of pus.
Just white skin near recent stitches is normal.It may come to normal skin size in course of time.
Nothing to worry
Wish you good health
I had a finger laceration. Now I have seven dissolving stitches. I see like some puss and a little blood coming out. Is this normal?
Thanks for writing in HCM.
If pus or pus like fluid is seen then you need to consult your doctor immediately. Infection of fingers can lead to stiffness and contracture development seriously affecting the dexterity of the hand.
