Dissolving Stitches

Ok so I think I have made it to day 12 after Circumcision.i decided to stop dressing/gauzing the scar n stitched area.i figured I should let it air dry from here on out.i can still see the sutures no change how long does it take them to completely dissolve or should I go have them removed?its starting to heal up am guessing from the texture of the wound.still taping up my glans tho just leave a little hole to pee thru can’t handle the sensitivity to be honest so scar is out for two days now it’s drying up I hope that’s a good thing !

Two weeks maybe longer if they are bothering you that much you can go to the gp and the nurse will take them out for you.

the Dr who did my circumcision advised it can take upto 6 weeks, the stitches get itchy in the day i just apply a little baby oil and warm water but salt baths are recommended and you start seeing the threads dissolving in the water every time i do it

Ok so today morning I noticed some stitches had dissolved and I think a boner I had at night as well got some to stretch so some are hurting now

17 days and my stitches are still there but it doesn’t hurt anymore

That’s the thing I wasn’t feeling a thing ...but today morning they felt off .but will let them keep dissolving I guess

That’s what I’m doing when I get erections it’s a little tender where my frenulum was because the scab is under the stitches and occasionally throughout the day at Work walking around it feels uncomfortable but manageable
