Getting stitches out Wednesday...

I had a sabaceous cyst removed from my back a couple weeks ago. It hasn't hampered me in any way but as the wound heals the stitches itch and seem to be getting tighter. Will be glad to have them removed.

Try not to think about the itching.

Naaaah--Just scratch it and take the stitches out early.

Long time since I had stitches but my real problem came a couple of days after they came out. As the skin healed- it really itched so had to keep a covering on the area of baby oil to stop the skin drying out.

A real man would let the wife take them out and spend the time he saved from not going to the doctor's by going on a bike ride.

Of course! Removing stitches is no harder than "lowering a hem" - simply cut, and remove with tweezers!
