Stitch abcess treatment
After the stitch has come out, It is helpful to protect the area while it is healing. I have patients wash with a gentle soap such as Dove or Cetaphil and then apply Aquaphor (available over the counter in the moisturizer section of your pharmacy) and a clean gauze pad until it is healed. You can use a nonstick pad if you choose or soak the gauze off in the shower.
