Infection Under Stitches

I’ve got some steri-strips covering a couple of 5″ stitched up incisions. Mine are absorbable stitches, so all that shows is the line where things were pulled together and blue knots at either end.
These are surface stitches that are cut free and the suture thread is pulled out when things are well into healing, unless of course, healing doesn’t happen.
When bodies attack infection things swell up, so when the stitch line is removed, it pops open and reall can’t be sewn shut until the swelling goes down and the infection is managed.
Sometimes you just have to leave them open (but covered) for a while.
