Here I go with another question! I've sure had a lot of them lately! One of my incisions got infected and opened up two inches all around and two inches deep. I've been packing it with saline soaked gauze strips and covering it with a gauze pad. It is now only about 1/4 inch deep and seems to be healing nicely. My question: what do I do when it becomes flush with the rest of my skin and I can no longer pack it? I was told it needed to stay wet to heal properly. Should I use antibiotic on the gauze / will it burn? Any other suggestions?
