How To Deal With Suture Thread Allergy After An Accident?
Greetings I am 17 years after the accident I broke a bone and was operated on but when I was in control for 2/3 Weeks later the doctor said, “Wow, this thread allergy is you, rarely people are allergic to threads” and even now it’s almost loose. the black inside was removed during the control but it’s still left until now. What is the solution? Thank you in advance
Hello Aarif! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Thread is a foreign body in the body, so it can cause local reactions or reactions from the body's immunity. This reaction can be part of the inflammatory process due to injury or it can be an allergic reaction to the skin. There are various factors that can trigger a reaction to the thread after surgery. The larger the thread used and the bigger the wound, the greater the risk of a reaction. There are two types of threads used in surgery, which are synthetic and natural. Natural yarns cause more reactions than synthetic yarns. The location of the surgery can also increase the risk of a reaction. Men also experience more reactions than women.
Although reactions occur, the thread does not always have to be removed because it also remains important in the wound healing process. Retrieval of the thread will depend on the doctor's judgment when looking at the wound. Often not all threads can be lifted. You may also be given medication to reduce the reaction that you experience. You can see whether the reaction (for example redness, swelling, or itching) on the wound area has decreased. If the reaction is burdensome, you should go back to see a doctor for examination.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
