The Stitches From The Surgery Were Exposed To Water?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Wound healing is very dependent on the depth of the existing wound and of course also depends on the presence or absence of factors that can hinder the wound healing process. There are several things that need to be considered factors that can hinder wound healing are as follows:
Often touch wounds. this can lead to secondary infection which causes the wound to become wet and difficult to dry.
Insufficient nutrient intake
Insufficient hydration intake due to insufficient water intake
There is interference with blood flow around the wound
The presence of certain chronic diseases such as diabetes or other chronic infections
Suboptimal wound adhesion.
The suture marks on the general can be removed in the second week after medical treatment. If exposed to water, it can actually be drained by patting the area with gauze and can be given an antiseptic or antibiotic ointment which has generally been prescribed by a doctor beforehand. The bandage should not be removed but it should not be too hard. Perform wound control to the doctor who treats you to see the condition of the wound and if there is no secondary infection condition or the wound is good enough then the stitches can be removed. However, of course it needs to be done by a doctor or qualified medical personnel, it is not recommended that you remove the stitches yourself.
