Arthur Weasley: "I don't know whether you know what — what stitches are?"
Molly Weasley: "It sounds as though you've been trying to sew your skin back together, but even you, Arthur, wouldn't be that stupid."
— Arthur and Molly Weasley in St Mungo's[src]

Stitches are a Muggle remedy for various wounds, which involves sewing bits of skin back together.[1]

  • Dissolvable stitches. Some stitches are dissolvable meaning that they are timed to break down on their own after the wound is healed and do not need to be removed by the doctor or dentist [1] or by your parents.
