Hello Nabila, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Suture scars that have not been completely dry actually do not always have to be sewn back. What you need to pay attention to is that you have to keep the wound dry and clean. Here are some of the things you can do:
Before touching to treat your wound, make sure you always wash your hands thoroughly with soap
If there is a clear yellowish liquid in the wound, you can clean your wound using sterile gauze and sterile saline. Gently apply to the wound, do not rub it roughly.
After cleaning, let the wound dry itself, after it dries you can apply the antibiotic ointment prescribed by your doctor.
After that you can cover your wound with a bandage.
Change your bandage if it gets dirty or wet.
Wash your hands again when finished treating the wound
Watch for the following signs of infection, if any of the following signs occur, go to the doctor immediately:
There is pus coming out of the wound (pus is milky-white yellowish, while if the color of the discharge from the wound is clear yellow, this is normal)
The area around the wound swells, becomes more painful, reddish, feels hot / warm to the touch
The wound opened wider
There was a bad smell from the wound
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
