If 2 surgical stitches come out of an abscess will the abscess clear up and heal?

Stitches just came out of abscess 5 months later.

I also had surgical stitches come out of a pimple like infection on my abdomen.  Answer- your body is pushing out the (foreign) stitch so it causes the abscess to expel the stitch.  Once stitch was removed, infection cleared up fast.
