laparoscopic appendectomy wound
i had my first surgery last friday (June 2) at about 10 pm. got out the next day at about 3 pm and today i had my staples removed. being the stupid 15 y.o. i am, i started messing with my new scabbed almost-scars. one of them opened back up again and i want to know how to close it on my own, because i don't want to worry my mom and i dont want to make her take me to the hospital again. i also dont want to get into trouble. help? please?

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  You need to see your doctor again.  It could be getting infected and pinching it closed is not going to help.

Well, watch carefully for signs of infection like redness, swelling, feeling warm to the touch, etc.
