Default Scar/Stiches Care

Hi Everyone,

After surgery, Dr. Reinisch told us to lightly dab Sophia's stiches on her eyelid with a wet q-tip so that cysts would not form and also so that all of the stiches would disolve. It's been about 2 weeks and she still has some threads coming out. I'm wondering, does anyone know how many times a day to do this? Any other suggestions for scar care?

Thanks in advance,

Ellie

We were given erythromycin ointment to spread over her eye 3 or 4 times a day. The nurse said that after about 2 weeks we wouldn't need it anymore and that all the stiches should be gone before then.
