Dog bite, stitches on cheek, pus and blood leaking from stitches. On augmentin, neosporin. Treatment?
My 4 year old daughter got bit by a dog sunday and got 4 dissolvable stitches in her cheek. I noticed today she has some puss mixed with blood leaking form it. She has been on 400ml augmentin 1/2 tsp 2x a day and neosporin on the stitches 3x a day. Her pediatrician didn t seem worried by it when i mentioned it to her. I was just worried because i was putting more neosporin on it and some squeezed out. I wasn t sure if I should bring her to the E.R. to have it checked or not
Thanks for query.
As medicine is given it will be alright.
But what is required is do not dress by your self,let dressing be done by your doctor as proper cleaning dressing is a must.
As cheek is cheek is cosmetically very important part of the body,there should not have any scar or irregular stitch lining.
Ok and bye.
