Lol, I suppose I should have phrased the question *should* you have ever had stitches. I was going to get myself checked out before as I didn't want a hideous scar but managed to convince myself that it was fine and I could deal with it on my own. Still waiting for that one to heal so not sure how bad the scarring is going to be.

Forgive me if this is too intrusive but were you left with rather bad scarring from the ones that should've had stitches?

I am totally in that same boat you are now. Working the courage up to go to the doctor actually. :]

Uhh, the scar is rather ugly. And it took forever and a day to heal.
