How To Treat Stitches On Knee?
, I had an accident and I was sewn inside and out, I continued to work in a factory, I was tired and was tired of going up and down stairs, this is after 2 weeks after I started sewing, what’s wrong with that?
Hello, Adryansyah Hungkul, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Indeed, after an accident and especially after stitching it is recommended to rest (not move) the limb where the stitches are being stitched so that the stitches dry quickly and unite. Regular check-ups with the doctor as recommended, eating high-protein foods such as egg whites and sea fish, keeping the wound clean, and not moving the stitches often can help speed up the healing process. If the sutures have not been removed, it is better to limit movement in the sutured area, either by dressing with an elastic bandage (you can ask at the pharmacy) or covering the wound with sterile gauze properly. If there are signs of infection such as: at the stitches / around the stitches there is redness, pain, heat, bleeding, pus, wetness, there is still a hole in the suture area, you should consult a doctor and do not move the part.
However, if the stitches have been removed and there are no signs of infection, plus there are sutures of scar (healing tissue like new skin), then you can move freely, provided there are no signs of fracture and/or strain (swelling, redness). , pain, reduced movement of the limb, changes in shape). If there are these signs, immediately see a doctor.
Here is an article that discusses how to treat stitches, hopefully it will be useful.
