I got my mole cut out 6 days ago and got told not to take the cover off until 10 days when I get the stitches out, is this ok?

The mole was about 1Cm by 1Cm so I have afew stitches the water proof padding covering it is see thru and there is a fair bit off dried up blood in there my doctor said that's ok I can leave it on until the ten days is up should I replace the cover and give the cut a clean
