How Long Does It Take Stiches To Heal .?
i rencently accidently cut my hand with a kitchen knife , and my cut was pretty deep and bad. and its been 3 1/2 weeks since i had the stiches , they are sapose to desolve , but they didnt . should i go back to the hospital?

I had 5 stitches awhile ago...as far as I can remember it took 3 weeks for the skin to grow a consistent scab without tearing. After the 3 weeks the stitches came out and the scab slowly went away. Depending on the severity of the injury it could take upwards of that. Just keep and eye on it and make sure to use plenty of anti-bacterial ointment and keep it covered from water. The ointment will keep the skin and scabbing moist so there will be less of a chance of tearing the scab and stitches. Good luck with the healing process.

~just me~
i had cut the tip of my finger really bad at work with a blade. received about seven stitches and kept it wrapped with tons of neosporin and it took about three weeks to heal. but i had to go back to doc to get stitches out. call your doc and let him know , he might just take them out or tell you to wait and it will happen soon.

If your cut was sewed with a non-absorbable suture, the stitches should be removed in 7 days. Absorbable sutures are not removed, and are left to just dissolve. These sutures are used inside the body so that the surgeon does not have to open you up again just to remove the stitches. You should go back to the hospital to have your stitches removed.

dissolvable stitches generally take 6 to 8 weeks to dissolve. unless you have a fever, you are fine. sometimes they take longer than that to dissolve.

wait for a month or 2 to heal and to look like normal again
