Unfortunately, without a complete history and physical exam and through pre operative photography there is not enough information to make an informed plan, please consult your surgeon or another local board certified plastic surgeon

Best to keep it dry

It would be best to keep it dry/clean to minimize the risk of infection for at least another two to three weeks.  Talk to your surgeon.

Best to be seen by your chosen Plastic Surgeon to be examined and treated appropriately. Appears as a minor wound healing issue.
