I just had my 4th MMA fight last night and lost due to a TKO/Ref Stoppage due to cut.
I had a pretty deep cut over my left eye and needed about 11 stitches total (3 on the inside, 8 on the out). I also have a large mouse under my eye which I think I may have been accidentally thumbed but it could just be from a strike too.
I got instructions from my doctor to keep it covered, use bacitracin and don't do anything to move it around. I also know to ice my eye and softly massage the bruise.
Is there anything else that I can do to quicken the healing of the stitches, make it heal stronger, reduce scarring and reduce the swelling/bruising???
Any tips from anyone that has fought and cuts often or just anyone who knows anything would be appreciated, thanks.
