I have dissolvable stitches on my chest from skin cancer surgery

Customer Question

I have dissolvable stitches on my chest from skin cancer surgery 11 days ago. I thought they had all desolved and started using essential oils on it yesterday. Today I see they have not all dissolved. Are the oils going to have a bad effect on my healing? Should i discontinue the oils?
