I had a small cyst removed from my chin, on the side of the chin area. The doctor used stitches that were removed a week later. He also said he put in 1 dissolvable stitch inside to make the wound heal tighter. It has been 9 weeks now and the area is still red and swollen on both sides of where the incision was at about the size of a dime on each side. Only red on one side of it which is odd, but maybe because the skin is thinner the close to the front of the chin it goes. The nurse told me to use a hydrocortizone creme to keep the redness in control because it appears my body is rejecting the stitch. She said it can take months for them to dissolve. Has anyone here had this experience? I am getting tired of the pain and embarrasing swelling/redness and want to have an idea of how much longer I have to deal with it. Lately I wonder if I should have just left the little cyst there. Sometimes the pain feels like a toothache on the side of my face. Last I saw the doctor in person was 4 weeks ago. Thanks for any input based on your experience you can offer.

Default Whatever ever happened? Did the redness go away?

Hello! I've been researching day after day about the problems I'm having with my chin after having a cyst removed. Our situations sound identical...it's the redness that isn't going away around the incision & I'm wondering if it ever will. Did your chin ever clear up? Or what did they end of doing for you? Thanks so much...I know you posted this several years ago.

It will heal, eventually.....you may have scar tissue forming Your body takes alot of time to heal from a trauma...and that's exactly what surgery is....a trauma to your body! It's so much more noticable on your face...I feel for you...but do give it time! It will dissolve and resolve itself!

The original post was two and half years ago. I suspect all is well now.
