Hi , welcome to H.C.M.Forum, prbably the stitches are absorbable sutures, when they desolve in tissue fluids for some people there may be burning sensation. if they are removable sutures also some times may cause irritation. nothing is there to worry about it. as there is no red ness and discharge you need not worry, thank you.
