Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Suture wounds are intentionally made injuries that are indicative of medical actions that are encountered, so that the doctor performs surgery to open the wound according to its indications and then closes the surgical wound with stitches or with other surgical wound closure techniques.
For sutured surgical wounds, after indications of surgery it was found either because of the fish's eye, a benign fatty tissue tumor, an oil gland cyst, or another major operation; then the wound is closed with stitches so that the bleeding is closed. In about 7 days, the surgical wound will be evaluated by the surgeon treating the patient, and if the wound is dry, the stitches will be taken then the wound is closed within 1 day. And if the wound is still wet, the sewing thread will be left until the stitches heal, usually evaluated every 3-4 days by the doctor.
In connection with your question, if your stitches have healed after fish eye surgery, then the stitches will be taken so that the skin will leave traces of stitching. In this condition, the former thread will dry out and improve in just a few hours. So it is recommended to close the wound for 1 day after the stitches are taken (give an antiseptic on top of it like iodine or red medicine), this is necessary so that the wound used in the thread dries immediately and does not become a place for the entry of germs. After more than 24 hours, the wound cover can be opened so that the surgical wound is open and may be exposed to water.
Therefore, you should still close this wound within the next 24 hours, after 24 hours from taking stitches, then you can already remove the bandage that covers your wound.
And if you still feel accompanying complaints after taking stitches, then you should discuss with your doctor again.
Thus the info we can convey.
