Scar Treatment After Removing Stitches
I recently had a small accident that required 9 stitches between my upper lip and nose (mustache area). The stitches were removed a week ago. In terms of removing and minimizing the scar, is it better to look at it now or give it more time since it's been only 2 weeks since I had the accident?
Also, I can now feel a lump under the area where the stitches were. Is this normal and will it go away?
