how to remove your own stitches

step 1: make sure wound is healed.

step 2: place hot (sanitary) rag on area that stitches shall be removed for about ten minutes (or run your hand under the faucet for less then a minute due to lack of patience. done.)

step 3: cut stitches, away from the knot, with nail clippers.

step 4: use tweezers to grab just under the knot. slide the stitch out.

step 5: clean wound.

step 6: place sponge bob band-aid on, almost healed, booboo.

the end.

ps - if you have the time, or money, to go to the doctor to get two stitches removed, by all means, go for it.
