I had that same reaction! I had foot surgery in Jan. When she went to take the stitches out, part opened back up (not all the way). She used the spray glue adhesive with sterile strips to get it to heal. Within 48 hours my foot was red, swollen, burning and really itchy!! Never again!!
As for the OP.. it does sound like his body rejects the stiches. Maybe it's not necessarily an "allergy" but something that irritates his body.
Just so you know though, they can fall out in chunks like that.
I wonder if this comes from a deeper underlying issue versus just the stiches however?
