    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
