When’s the anti-scar ointment after the nose tear suture?
Q: I’m a woman in my early 20s. I was shopping at the mart and hit my nose hard on the handle of the cart, causing my nose to rip about 1cm.
I went to plastic surgery within 3 hours and had sutures removed after 5 days.
The wound is healed and a scab is on it. When should I start applying anti-scar ointment?
A: It depends on the type of anti-scar ointment, but usually remove the thread and apply it after 2-3 days.
If you didn’t tell me to start applying it from when, I’ll unwrap the thread and apply it from two days later.
