How To Deal With Black Circumcision Sutures?
Why does the circumcision suture turn black after the bandage is opened?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In general, there are two types of sewing threads used for sewing wounds, namely the outer sewing thread and the sewing thread inside, or also called the thread that is not absorbed and that is absorbed. That which is absorbed is the internal sewing thread because it is not possible to take the thread that is not absorbed because it is located in the body. It must be absorbed by the body itself.
This unabsorbed thread, which is used to cover various wounds on the surface of the skin including those that appear during the circumcision process, are mostly black. So it could be that from the beginning the stitched thread is black.
Another possibility is that he is black when he is not black initially because he is exposed to blood that comes out during the circumcision process, it could also be due to an antiseptic liquid that is affixed to the bandage, or because there is dead tissue attached. Either way, black sewing thread is not a sign of danger. If you feel extreme pain, blood flowing or other discomfort, consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
