Re: infection due to stitches

Well, if they don't try to remove the infection, it won't go away. However, make sure you go to a hospital with a very good record for dealing with this sort of thing. They might need to do a culture on your infection to find the best antibiotic possible.

Have they tested you for diabetes or any other health problems that might be interfering with your healing?
