Patient :I got stitches on a two cuts on my forehead just above my eye and the cuts are about an inch long. I'm a surfer and I've been out of the water about three days, Is it ok for me to go surfing now? Or should I wait until the stitches are taken out?
Symptoms: Cuts are healing well and there's no sign of infection. Also there hasn't been a recent rain and I wont surf near a rivermouth.
