BCG Injection Marks Like Stitches?
, I want to ask why my BCG injection marks are different from other people’s which are usually small, why do I even extend about 3.5 cm and are often considered stitches when applying for work.rnAnd can it be removed?
Good afternoon Doni, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. BCG immunization is one type of immunization that must be given because of its excellent function in protecting a person from Tuberculosis or TB infection. However, after the injection, there are some common reactions such as the scars you mentioned.
In your case, a wound that extends up to 3.5 cm can occur due to changes in position such as moving around during the injection, so that the injected immunization fluid spreads and leaves a longer mark than usual.
Regarding whether it can be removed or not, there are several ways that have been used to remove stubborn scars, including:
Micro Dermabrasion dermabrasion Steroid injection Laser resurfacing
