^in certain circumstances they can, but it is rare. I'd recommend getting it seem to as soon as possible. They will be able to dress it properly at the very least to aid healing.



We’ll find a way to fight it, we always have.
It's not how tragically we suffer but how miraculously we live.

I've had stitches after 24hours although it did require surgery beforehand. It is always worth getting seen to because there are a whole load of treatment options.

they can debride the wound to make the edges more suitable for closure after 24 hours but for the majority of the time they just wrap it.
