How to care for a closed surgical incision

1 min read
Leave dermabond or Steri-Strips over incision for as long as they will stay there. This helps the incision heal better and with less scarring.
Once the dressing is removed -if the incision still looks raw-you can apply an antibacterial appointment to the incision until it is healed.
Once completely healed you can apply vitamin E oil to the incision daily to help reduce scarring.
Do you not scrub or irritate the incision. Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.
