How long does it take for Steri-Strips to come off on their own?
Doctor Answers 5
Everyone has different experiences with stern-strips. Some fall off immediately. Others stick for awhile. This is somewhat dependent on the technique your doctor used to place the steristrips as some doctors use a skin glue under the steristrips so they stick longer. I suggest you speak with your PS first, but most likely it is ok to gently peel the steristrips off. There are medical adhesive removers that may also be helpful.
