I had hand surgery about a month ago and just recently stopped keeping it wrapped up. The problem I have is there is a good bit of dried blood built up all around the stitches. One part in particular is REALLY bad because it is in between 2 nubs (pink and ring fingers? if I can still call them that?
) and IDK how to get it out. I don't want to pick at it and risk ripping something open but it is quite a bit of build up and looks pretty bad.
Is there anything I can use to soften/dissolve the blood that won't mess with the stitches or the wound? I'm not bleeding or anything anymore so I would assume the wound is closed up since it has been a little over a month now.
