That is a good question,
I assume your wound was cleaned yesterday in the CVS clinic.
It is better not to open the wound as it may cause bleeding.
Instead, wash it from the outside with warm clean water.
Soap water is also fine.
Then pat dry, and apply bacitracin.
Keep the area bandaged to avoid any dirt entering the wound.
this is likely clotted blood.
yes body will take care of the healing.
There is no dirt likely due to the clot formation.
yes that should be fine
as long as there is no worsening of the swelling or pain or fever, you should be fine.
