MsLead, Where is the suture material and how deep is it? If it is superficial it is possible that it can be pulled out with the tip of a needle through a small poke hole . Can you feel it? Can you see it? More information will help.

It may be able to excised. We would need to see a photograph. Also steroid injection or 5-fu injection may be helpful.
