Night doctor, I want to ask why the skin around the stitch marks on my leg looks like it has a white layer like it’s almost peeling off .. I was incised for about 2 weeks ago because it was punctured by a nail.

1 Answer:

Regards,


From the information you conveyed, if 2 weeks ago you received treatment in the form of an incision in the nail prick area, it means that the skin that will peel off is dead skin after the incision. Then after a period of wound healing and healing, new skin has grown and replaced skin that is white or damaged. Thus, you should still leave the skin that is about to peel off until it is completely peeling off. If you force yourself to pull it, it can risk causing new wounds, thus increasing the length of the recovery period.


However, if you feel worried or anxious regarding the recovery of this wound, then you should consult directly with the doctor who treated you before. So the doctor can provide follow-up care and necessary treatment information.


That is the information we can convey, read also wound care.
