Thanks for writing to us.
Right now just take oral antibiotics, vitamin c supplement, and apply topical antibiotic properly to help the area heal. Once the stitches have been removed, use tretinoin gel in night and silicone/dimethicone vitamin c based gel twice in a day over the scar. As injured area has been sutured, be prepared that some tell tale sign would remain. However if stitches are placed proeprly and appropriate medicnes are used, scarring would be minimal.
Take care
