Is it possible for stitches to be accidentally left in eyelid? When I open my eye or look up it feels as though a scab is being open. That's what I thought previously cos it was healing and I didn't dare touch the eyelid at all. But now that it is healing and there are no scabs I pressed the area and found sharp sensations. It feels as though I am pressing on stitches and it is poking me inside. Is this possible?
