Wound Care - stitches, bandages etc
I got stitches for the first time last night so I'm not sure how I should look after my cut. I've got to keep them in for 7 days and they put this wet gauze thing on before the normal gauze and then a bandage. How often should I change the bandages? Do I have to keep it dry? Should I leave the dressing on or take it off and change it? If I have to change it what should I change it to as I've never seen the first gauze thing he put on before? Any advice would be welcome.
