My son had 3 very small stitches in his lower lip. After 5 days we removed them ourselves since it appeared to be healing very well. Of course we had a bit of a stuggle holding him still. I'm sure two of the stitches were removed completely. I'm not positive about the 3rd? I'm afraid I cut behind the knot on both sides. I'm not sure. They're non-soluble. Will a fragment cause infection? Should I just wait and see if he gets an infection to take him to the doctor for an x-ray?

Would that show up on an X-Ray ? - somehow I doubt it Sterile stitching materials are not exactly designed to create abscesses. I suggest that you leave things - don't touch
