Your best bet is to use salt water or saline to help cleanse the crusting - 2 to 3 times a day. Everyone has their own preference depending on what kind of sutures were used and what the appropriate post operative care should be of the wound area, I would suggest you contact your surgeon's office just to check and see what their preference may be. Best of luck!
Had cartridge from ear to nose - is it better to use carbonate soda and salt water to remove crusts?
