No, It will dissolve by their own with in 1-2 weeks without giving any color.

Dr. Shanthi.E MD

It is just taking a little longer. If it takes more time to dissolve, there might be an underlying infection or pus collection.

Dr.  Praveen Tayal MD

The dissolvable stitches do get weak and come out on their own after a week or 10 days. Do not try to remove these earlier as that might cause gaping of the wound.
