Random question, I was in a car accident a few days ago and had some significant damage to my ear, thus getting many, many stitches. Well naturally my ear has swollen, is it alright to put an ice pack over my stitches?
Should be fine. Do not leave it on for more than 20 minutes before giving your stitches a 20 minute break. After the first 2 days stop using the ice because it won't do you any more good and you need good circulation to get to the area to help you heal and fight possible infection.
