Stitches and its care

Hi. I got a few stitches above my eyebrow two days ago. It has been covered with bandage ever since. Should I keep it open or covered? Shall I change the dressing periodically? I am on complete bed rest at home for next week too till the stitches come off.

Don't remove ur bandage on stitches unless they are taken off it might cause infection if kept open remove it after 4 days of steches are removed
