How To Deal With Scabs On Suture Scars?
, I had an accident that caused my finger to tear and stitched 8 stitches, well, 2 weeks ago the stitches were opened and dried, but the former stitches have a scab and there are black, green and reddish reds in the skin around the stitches, 1. Is it reasonable like that? 2. How to deal with it?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Basically, the wound is natural if it leaves scars in a black or darker color compared to the surrounding skin color, but if there is a green and reddish color, it still needs further examination, whether it is only a projection of blood vessels and processes inflammation that still occurs behind it, or is there an infection and other disorders that have not been treated.
Our advice, it would be better if you go back to the doctor who treats you, or at least to the nearest general practitioner, to be sure about the condition. Because if you don't have a complaint and it turns out it's normal, there's nothing to do. But if it turns out it is an infection or inflammation, maybe you will need medication. With a direct examination, this condition can be clearer and misunderstandings can be avoided.
In the meantime, all you need to do is keep the area clean and dry, no need to apply any medication except with a doctor's recommendation, and don't need to worry too much. So, hopefully answering your question.
