Common Questions and Answers about White skin around stitches

And I heard this infection was very contagious, should I be worried about that? ABOUT STITCHES I remember asking him if he put stitches on the inside when he was done with the surgery, and he said no. I saw something sticking out of one of the holes last week after my shower and after it was done pus-ing and bleeding. It wouldn't wipe off and it wasn't a scab because it was white, so I gently tugged on it and it came right out, I hardly felt it.
bandaids, stitches etc. I had trouble with dissolvable stitches comes through my skin on my thigh several years ago after a melanoma surgery. I had stitches, clear ooze and sometimes white congealed lumps of goo about the size of a pea coming out of the 1/4" wound along the incision line for several months. It would heal up and then open again. Surgeon kept blowing me off for months. He finally did the "wound revision" a week b4 xmas (Decompression surgery 6/09).
Anyway, I felt like fainting after the stitches were out and it really hurt because it felt like the stitches were growing into the skin...ouch!! But dr. said everything looks healthy and healed. I went home and was so tired, went to sleep and have been sleeping as much as possible because I feel soooo weak and when I'm sleeping, have the sweats CONSTANTLY. So thirsty too. I always have had a lower blood temperature like 97.5 but for me, I would say i had a low grade fever at 98.2.
and he informed me he had removed a few internal piles and the external ones, and removed the skin tags and excess skin round my anus, leaving soluble stitches. And to take PARACETAMOL for pain relief!!!
I'm now waiting on results of the skin biopsy and my PCR results. I know that lots of you have post TX skin issues. Has this or anything similar happened to anyone else???
Hi, I'm so sorry to hear about your cat's skin cancer. I don't know too much about skin cancer in cats, but why don't you post in the Related Expert Forums where it says Cancer in Pets. A Vet will answer your question. I've posted in one of the forums when I had a question on diabetes in cats. I can understand your apprehension with surgery. Let us know how kitty is doing and good luck.
It started around the time of my second period after I had a miscarriage. I have never had a yeast infection or any other problems before this started happening. I have been having sex with only my fiance (father of the baby we lost) for about a year and a half now. Now that I see I'm not the only one that this happens to, I don't understand how this condition doesn't have a medical term for it. I really don't think that this condition is caused by allergies.
After they go away for a while they leave marks where the skin has stretched. Today one of them opened and blood and white stuff-puss?- came out. It hurt, but now I feel like they are smaller. It still hurts, but I think it is just healing.
Hi there, I have had symptoms since last June (07) that I have had all infectious conditions ruled out. I am now looking at biopsy of the vulvar skin to uncover some answers, so I wanted to post here to see if any other women have gone to a dermatologist and had results. I have posted on the women's health forums here, but since i have ruled out std's, fungus, bacteris, yeast, hormone levels, strep-B, etc etc, this is clearly a skin issue.
I put on my thick skin whenever I enter the current events zone. It's been this way since I've been around and Teko can back me up when I say that this is actually kind of tame compared to past periods here. What I find hardest about the CE is when I'm misunderstood. And to clarify what you really meant is hard. It is so easy when you are writing here to have something taken a certain way you never even thought of when you wrote it. That happened to me the other day.
Stitches and white lines can tell more than words ever could. I can't seem to quit you, even though I know I should. I help people 'cause I can't help myself. You were the best thing I had ever felt. How do I let the ghosts go? How do I stop being my own foe? How do you stop breathing air? How do you quit the only one who cares? I can't even look myself in the eye. I can't even think without wanting to cry. I can't save myself, all alone. I can't stop you, you are my home.
I noticed at the beginning of last school year, I got a white circle around each of the moles on my back. Now it is August and the moles are completely gone. The white circles are still there and now there is just a small red dot in the middle of the circle, Im assuming thats maybe the mole now. Should I be concerned?
My tongue is still healing, was two weeks ago, and there’s a bump where stitches we placed, not sure if it’s thick skin that developed from the surgery or if it’s still a wart. Question: How do I know when it’s safe to kiss my partner? Is this easily transmitted by kissing or do I have to visually have the wart to pass it on?
The areas of white you describe along the scar line are likely stitches that tend to absorb under the skin and form little pockets of fluid. It is nothing to be alarmed at. I do not think that there is a recurrence of your DCIS. It is highly unlikely that it will recur this quickly. But, you should still be seeing your plastic surgeon, so at your next appointment, ask the same questions.
is it normal for my kitty to have a hard spot around her stitches on her stomach after getting spayed?
Suture-site reactions - swollen, red skin around sutures or stitches (uncommon). Suture site reactions refer to allergic-type, inflammatory skin reactions that some cats and other animals develop because of the type of suture being used in the surgical incision repair. Basically, suture site reactions are immune-mediated inflammatory reactions that occur when the cat's body decides to reject the foreign bodies (the sutures or stitches) that the vet has just implanted into the skin.
that is why I asked what yours looked like on the top before picking. Mine ( see my pic) has a rought white bit of skin like the ones in the link below. Hope these pics get you off for a skin check asap http://au.images.search.yahoo.com/search/images?
A c-section is MAJOR surgery. Vaginal is much easier to recover from even if you tear or rip. I had over 100 stitches with my first 2 births & felt fine in 2-3 days. With my last I didn't have any stitches & walked from the delivery room to my recovery room. With a c-section they are cutting through muscles. That's going to be painful & take some time to recover from.
I have some scaring and bumps from the circumcision. Supposedly, I picked at the stitches after the surgery while I was sleeping, causing the scaring. They have never been a problem and barely noticeable when erect. One day last year I tried to pick off one of the bumps. I have a problem with picking at my skin. I constantly pick at small bumps that I get on the back of my upper arms. I know I shouldn't do it but it's one of those bad habits, like biting your fingernails.
the contents of pustules are, if anything a more hostile environment for microbes, including HIV than normal skin since they are filled with pus which is the body's host response to infection. lots of white blood cells and other things which fight infections. So i have some problem if i have a acne in somewhere and it squeezed around half and hour.
Well he was fine for two days but the stitches rip off, w/in three days the vet did another surgery to close the stitches and ask us to pay attention to the dog not to scratch. Well w/in 2 to 3 days all the stitches rip off again. The vet ask request for surgery again or to leave the wound open and eventually it will close w/in 1 month. Today is June 15 not one month yet, but the wound it is still open about a bottle top wide.
A bit of skin white 'dried?' skin on my lip that peels off. I apply POLYSPORING once every night around my lower lip. I hope that information would be sufficient if not please don't afraid to ask for more.
Ok, the skin has pulled back and there are some very small cuts around the base of the penis and near the tip. there is no more itching or burning, so I'm not sure what this is, or if it is going to devolp into something worse.
I have the next two days off so I can relax...kinda... I have an appt on Monday and I am probably having a biopsy on a area of skin on the bottom of my foot... won't be fun.. I also got a chiropractor appt monday night but if my foot is messed up I may not be able to go.. will have to wait and see.. If it gets done on monday then I will probably be off til Thursday..kinda scared.. How are you feeling??
as for the divet left behind, your body will gradually rebuild the tissue there and you will be left with a very small white spot for a scar. it will not tan to match yous skin, but will flatten out.
here's the update on rubin-the vet finally decided to once again try stitching it up, but this time, not skin to skin, but skin to muscle, so while there are still patches of exposed muscle with no skin covering them, the skin that was flapping around is now firmly in place against the muscle. it looks so much better!
yea the stretch marks in my pubic area leading to my tummy are my worst, they are massive ripped skin, id say my tummy/pubic area is 98% stretched skin and 2% normal skin, my sister friend had a baby at 16 shes now around 30 and apparently her stretch marks and saggy skin were just as bad as mine, she showed me her tummy now and my god it looks 100times better, hardly saggy and couldn't really see stretch marks, this gives me hope that over time they will get better!!
I have not disturbed the blood clot, but have noticed some white material in the wound around the stitches. Is this food or just the skin healing? If it is food how do I get it out from around the stitches? Rinsing does not help.
Today, after taking a shower, I notice, on another part of the lump that's surrounded by the surgical scar, what looked like a flake of white dry skin. I got my tweezers to remove it....but it turned out to be a large plug of solidified oil gland secretion. When it pulled it out (it was perhaps a bit less than 1/8" long), it was followed by a gush of blood. So now, I have 2 open holes in this thing, w/ stuff coming out of them.
