    What my mum always said! Don't know if it is true though. Staples in a head wound? That isn't nice! It would be worth asking your doctor though - it could be an allergic reaction to the metal in the staples or to something they washed it with.

    Watch those doors, more accidents in the homes than outside I hear.  

    Here in the U.S I think thread stitches are used mostly, but know when the area itches, it's healing.....so watch things.   Joy

    Any injury site that has either stitches or staples my cause itchy irritation. It is also a sign of recovery. I hope you have a speedily recovery.
