Got 2 cuts maybe longer than an inch across my thigh.Bleeding stoped after 5/7 mins, they are opened a bit but can be pinched back. Do i need stitches?
Mobile or not: Depends where the cuts are and hoe deep. If in a spot on thigh that is not affected much by bending your hip or knee may be able to use butterfly type bandage to bring skin together. The deeper the cuts and the more mobile the skin related to leg movement the better off you may be with stitches to insure the best healing. Tetanus up to date? ...Read more

Just had stitches removed from a pilonidal cyst excision. The wound was not fully healed and one day later it won't stop bleeding. What can I do?
Here are some...: Minor bleeding of various degree is expected at this stage of healing. All what you have to do is flush the wound for cleansing, paint it with betadine solution, and place 4x4 gauze with some pressure as long as having no bleeding tendency. This wound takes time to heal - as long as 1-3 months depending on its size and personal healing ability. Of course, ask your surgeon as needed. ...Read more

Yesterday morning i got 2 of my wisdom teeth removed, now some of the undissolvable stitches are loose and falling but there's no pain or bleeding?
No worries: After extracting thousands teeth, I have had patients who had loose and even missing sutures. The final outcome was the same, a healed extraction socket. Do not do anything that may cause suction, i.e. Use of a straw, smoking, etc. As this may cause the dislodging of the clot organizing inside the socket. Loss of this clot may cause a dry socket which is very painful. Call your dentist and ask. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
