There Are Lumps On The Inside Of The Lips That Are Sewn?
Hello. 2 weeks ago my lips were stitched 5 stitches, because it was quite inside the wound, and now the wound on the outside has dried, but so there is a lump in the inner part of the lip, is it one of the healing process and can the lump be flat again? I look so swollen. I guess how long it takes to recover completely?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The lump is most likely not part of the recovery, especially if it has just appeared. Even if there is a lump directly related to suturing, the lump usually appears from the start. Even so, bumps on the lips are often not dangerous.
These lumps can appear if there are clogged glands, injury to the lips, whether it is punctured by the edge of the food, punctured by a toothbrush, or accidentally bitten. Regarding your question, to recover completely actually depends on how severe the condition is, but generally takes up to several weeks.
If during these 2 weeks you don't feel any difference or improvement on your lips at all, check with your ENT doctor to find out if there may be other conditions that also need to be treated specifically. By seeing the ENT doctor directly, misunderstandings can be avoided and if there are certain abnormalities, they can be treated immediately.
Meanwhile, no need to worry, slowly when brushing your teeth, consumption of soft foods, do not eat while talking, multiply the consumption of fruits and vegetables, do not smoke, and immediately consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
