wounds should never be kept dry

For proper management of a wound, it should be kept moist so the cells within the tissue can utilize it as a “scaffolding” to grow.

An antibiotic ointment/cream (Neosporin, triple antibiotic ointment, etc.) should be applied 1-2x daily before the dressing is applied.

This will facilitate healing and also prevent the dressing from sticking to the wound causing a rip to the skin.
