What to put on wound separation
This is a complex question because there are many reasons for wound separation. If the wound is clean then I tell my pts. to simply use Vaseline and a dry dressing on the wound 1-2x/day. If the wound needs some cleaning up then I may recommend saline wet to dry dressings 2-3x/day and then go to Vaseline/dry dressing once the wound has cleans up. Studies show that wounds heal faster Ina moist environment thus the reason that Vaseline ointment works so well. I avoid Neosporin and Bacitracin ointment because the antibiotic component of these ointments can give a red rash if used for any extended period of time. I hope this sheds some light on a confusing topic. Best regards.
There are many variables such as time that has passed, infection expected, etc. The most important factor is to be examined and treated in person, then follow up closely with your Plastic Surgeon until you are healed.
All the best
