Dermabond Vs Stitches for Minimizing Scars?
My 22 months old son fell and his forehead was cut open about 1/2 inches wide. Rushed to ER, they said he needed stitches. I asked if they could glue the wound shut which they did with Dermabond.
Today, I went to the pediatrican and dr. told me that I should have him stitched up instead of glued.
Now my son will have a scar on his forehead for sure. I feel terrible. I've never been in the ER before and didn't know what option I had and what's best method.
Is it true that stitches is better in this case?
