I had 4 stitches in between my toes. After 12 days stitches were removed and the doctor placed tape and said it will eventually fall off. I have not showered (spot bathed). I have concern post removal of stitches since it’s in a precarious place. I wonder if there is any treatment to keep the skin properly healed.

I have redness 4 days after stitch removal, and itchiness.
