Wound occlusion and absorption are crucial to wound healing. Studies have demonstrated that the rate of epithelialization under a moist occlusive dressing is twice that of a wound that is left uncovered and allowed to dry. At this point, you should apply a Vaseline and a band-aid to keep the wound moist and occluded.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
