Re: If your child had stitches in their forehead...

Pretty much what everyone else said. DD1 had a few stitches right in the center of her forehead when she was 2yo. I wanted to add that when they take the stitches out you might ask for steristrips over the healing area. They took hers out on day 10 and because her forehead skin was tighter with no tissue underneath it pulled open a bit and left a not so nice scar. She is 10yo now and it bothers her. There is alays the option of scar revision with a plastic surgeon later. Avoiding infection is also very important. Infected lacerations do not heal well even with stiches.
Just in case.
