Can you swim the day after having stitches taken out?
The stitches are on my lip/face.

Ask the doctor.

Stitches will be removed as soon as they have done all they can towards getting healing started. This does not mean that healing is complete!
You should not swim until you know that the wound has completely healed. If in doubt, allow 6-8 weeks or ask your doctor.

Not advisable, getting it wet will soften the skin and may open up again.
