What does white skin next to recent stitches indicate?
If there is no pain at the stitches site and fever,do not worry.
Sometimes,the area of stitches get infected.
Then,there will be oozing of pus.
Just white skin near recent stitches is normal.It may come to normalskin size in course of time.
Nothing to worry
Wish you good health
Hello doctor, a few hours ago my 8 month old son fell over on his toy and cut the outside corner of his eye, does he need stitches
If cut is more than 1 cm and deep ,need suture .
If cut is less than 1 cm and superficial ,need not stitches.
If superficial and ,just skin deep ,no stitches.
I had an operation 3 weeks ago and was told i had dissolvable stitches, and the stitches are still there. is this normal? this was keyhole surgery.
If the stitches are present in toto, I would recommend getting them removed even if they are absorb-able ones. They can cause infections.
