The Cause Of The Suture Wound Not Healing Has Been Almost A Month?
I want to ask? r nPut stitches can be removed by yourself or not? r nCurrently, I want a month to heal my stitches, what should I do?
Hello Mecky, Thank you for the question.
Suturing the wound is done to repair the wound deep enough for the wound to heal properly. After suturing the wound, good wound care is needed so that the wound can heal properly. Apart from wound care, there are also several factors that affect wound healing, such as the emphasis on the wound, the patient's nutritional status, the patient's health condition (whether he has a medical condition that interferes with the wound healing process such as diabetes), and wound infection. The first step to preventing infection is to clean the wound before suturing the wound. If you don't treat the stitches properly according to the doctor's instructions, then the infection can still occur even though the wound has been cleaned before stitching. The presence of infection (with symptoms of redness, swelling, discharge of pus, increased pain in the wound, or fever) can cause disruption of the wound healing process and wound healing can take longer. In addition, if there is emphasis on the wound, lack of nutritional intake, or have diabetes, it will also cause the wound to heal longer. We recommend that you consult a doctor immediately. Your doctor will need to examine your wound to find the cause of the disruption in the wound healing in your foot. It is not recommended that you remove the stitches yourself because if you cut the thread at the wrong place, it can cause the thread to leave behind in the skin. Please keep this wound dry and clean.
Hope this information is helpful.
