How Long Does It Take For The Stitch Marks To Stop Being Hard?
Hi, I am graceful I have performed surgery for a tumor on the breast of 9x6x2 cm about 2 months and a half ago … what I want to ask is this, with a tumor size of 9x6x2 cm taken from me, how long will it take for the dj to be in the scar the seams are not hard huh? The problem is that until now the inside is right below the stitch marks there are still hard … please explain, thank you …
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. When the skin tissue opens in the form of a wound, whether it is due to an accident, fall, puncture or accidentally created during surgery, the skin will try to close it and restore it to its original state because intact skin is one of the body's strongholds from various diseases.
However, not all skin can immediately return to normal, and it can be caused by the following things:
The formation of scar tissue or keloid healing tissue or overgrowth of scar tissue. Seroma or blood clots
So in fact, a direct examination by a dermatologist is needed to be able to really determine what condition you are experiencing and how long it will take to return to normal, also whether special treatment is needed such as laser therapy, corticosteroid injections, dermabrasion, etc. to treat the wound or simply just keep quiet.
Meanwhile, avoid applying anything to the scar, avoid pressing, squeezing or scratching the scar, and immediately consult a dermatologist. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
