Re: The Stitches Window

Typically after 6 hours it's best to not stitch. Wounds on the hand and the face can go longer without stitches due to good blood supply. Like Katherine said, the doctor is likely worried about closing an infection. Just keep in bandaged and protected and you should be fine.
