Hi,

Yes,you can take brief shower after having sutures for two days.

And gently dry it with soft cotton cloth and apply polysporin ointment on it.

Avoid swimming, baths or soaking the wound until sutures are removed or Dermabond has fallen off. (Water in the wound can interfere with healing).

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
Your satisfaction is our goal.
