Can allergic reaction to sutures cause white blisters on a wound?

Hi I cut my hand and had to get stitches. I have had them for 6 days now, and I have to small white blisters one on each side on one stitch. And one underneath the other stitch. The wound is healing well otherwise. The blisters hurt a bit but nothing comes out of them? Could it be a allergic reaction to the material or what?

The white blisters may be due to fibrosis tissues and it indicates that the wound is healing well. As the wound is clean and no signs of infections, nothing much to worry and no treatment is required.

Hi, I had a 55mm mass and tissue taken from my parotidectomy and also over half the gland. I have very sensitive skin. My surgeon on my external suture removing visit thought I may be reacting/allergic to the sutures. I had the surgey 3.5 weeks ago. I have now got an allergic reaction rash that is very tender all around the surgical site which extends from above my ear around my ear and to half way down my neck. The rash looks like big acne pimples. Only clear fluid comes out and despite elecon 1% cream they aren t getting better. It s painful and embarrassing. Could I be allergic/reacting to the internal disolvable sutures?? Thanks.

My tongue itches really bad toward the front left side and I have been itching it with my teeth causing it to be sore. I recently had a bad allergy attack with pollen and have been sneezing and coughing and congested. Is the tongue itching related to the allergy?
