Large scab 7 weeks post-MOHS - should I put Vaseline on it or just not worry?

MOHS for bcc on forehead Nov. 7. After stitches removed two weeks post-op, a large scab remained in center of area; this scab is still just as large (7 weeks later) and feels strongly adherent - should I put Vaseline on it or just not worry? I'm using Scarguard 2x/day on the rest of the scarred area where stitches were removed...

Post Mohs care for scar

Most Mohs surgeon recommend gentle care for the scar. If there is any scabbing I typically recommend applying vaseline to the area but I would recommend you check with your Mohs surgeon.
