Hi Tio, thanks for the question. Wound suturing is a surgical procedure that aims to facilitate wound healing. Minor to moderate wounds usually take 7 -10 days to heal. Wounds will heal and recover quickly if regular and good wound care is carried out. Wound care that is not good will cause infection in the wound so that it hampers the healing process.
Open wound stitches should be immediately examined by the nearest doctor for further treatment. You can temporarily clean the wound with gauze and warm water. Then make sure to cover the wound with gauze to prevent infection from occurring. In addition, keep taking the drugs given by the doctor who stitched your wound.
