Wound Care Question - stitches and blisters
I got stitches on some SH on Wednesday morning and now, my arm is fairly swollen, is gently raised all the way around the wounds and it hard to touch if that makes sense? It is a little warm, but I wouldn't describe it as hot. It also really really hurts, a dull ache most of the time and a sharp pain if I move my arm/wrist in the wrong direction.
I also have some blisters that I kinda filled with blood and blister liquid where I had steri strips before. The whole area itches.
Is there anything I can do about any of this?
Can I get the stitches wet, like have a shower?
Sorry, I know nothing aboiut this stuff.
