How To Cure Sc Wounds That Open After 3 Weeks?
Hello .. I want hertanyaal .. I was after giving birth with sc. After 3 weeks my connection wound opened again huh … but not festering.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In a cesarean procedure, there are two types of suturing, namely internal suturing and external suturing with different threads. For internal sewing where the stitches are the uterus, muscles and other tissues, the thread used is the thread that can be absorbed, so that the thread will gradually disappear and do not need to be taken. While for external sewing, that is to sew a layer of leather, thread that cannot be absorbed is used, which means the thread will continue to exist as long as it is not removed.
In your case, because the stitches you are referring to are certainly outer stitches, it means that the thread used is thread that cannot be absorbed. Because it cannot be absorbed, the skin is already fused, with frequent friction and there may be peeling parts of the skin, the thread can escape by itself. This is what might be considered in the layman stitches open. When in fact it is not, the thread is released due to the condition of the skin which is already fused and recovered. This could be what you experience, especially if you say that there is no pus, and you also did not mention the pain or blood flowing.
If this is indeed the case, then there is nothing special you need to do because it's all normal. But if you are in doubt, or indeed certain symptoms appear like pain, a hole in the stomach, redness, swelling or the like, then consult yourself again to your obstetrician beforehand to be seen immediately and given further treatment. Meanwhile, just keep the area clean, don't scratch and gouge out, and don't need to give any medicine without the doctor's advice. So, hopefully answering your question.
