You'll do fine....I'm not overly fond of tetanus shots myself and I get allergy shots every two weeks!

Take a pair of tweezers and a small pair of scissors (I like those that come in a manicure set with a sharp point). Pull the ends with the tweezers and slip the scissors under the knot, clip and pull. Very simple!

Hi I went for a operation about two years ago under my chin, I had to remove a gland that could have been harmful in the long run. When I went and got the gland removed I got stitches. However, the doctor did not notify me about getting the stitches removed, all she mentioned was removing the bandage after a couple of days. Since then I realised that there has been a growth on the stitches and recently it has been starting to show more. Could you please advise me on what is suitable to be done in this situation?
