It is hard to comment on your question without physically seeing you or at least your photos. It takes about two weeks for the wounds to heal up.  At times, wound healing can be delayed at the middle of the wound where the blood supply is the least and tension is the most. You will need dressings until the wounds are healed in two weeks, but if wound healing is delayed is some areas, you will need dressings here until the wounds are fully healed.
