Steri strip allergy vs healing histamines (Photo)
9 days post op. I visited my Dr. Monday to have the original steri strips removed and new steri strips placed. I mentioned to him I was itchy and he said it was most likely the histamines that are relaeased when one heals. He said my skin under the steri strips is perfectly intact with no signs of breakdown. The itching follows the incision lines (anchor cut) I have internal dissolvable stitches. Can you give me some feedback about the healing process and histamines??
