You need to take gauze napkins and handle the seams with skin antiseptics such as zelenki, alcohol, iodinol or iodoperone. They all help to heal the skin. Before starting to care for a seam after surgery at home, you need to buy levomekol or sea buckthorn ointment. For ointments with panthenol content, it will be a good tool for prolonged scars.
