ive had 3 stitches on my temple 4days ago. the wound is almost closed. when can I remove the stitches and how can I treat the swelling on the wound. is it fine
sutures on the scalp can usually be removed after 5-7days,depending on wound condition...the swelling usually subside with the given anti inflammatory agents.nothing to worry.meanwhile keep the area pretty clean and dry.avoid excess sweating.
