"Dr. Schlessinger's attention to detail of every patient makes my trip to his office all the way from Queens a worthwhile experience. His staff is friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable assisting me through all exams and tests. I highly recommend Dr. Schlessinger and his staff at Schlessinger Eye & Face."

I was instructed to put gauze on my incision since my skin hates band aids and now I am dealing with the gauze ripping my my scabs off even when being pulled gently and causing me to bleed I then spend half an hour cleaning (I become a little paranoid) the incision cites while waiting for it to stop bleeding, so my question is what can I do eliminate the pain and mess and still try to get it them to heal?
This question is best directed to the surgeon that performed the procedure. However, it sounds as if your incision may be getting too dry and sticking to the gauze. You should ask your surgeon if it is ok to keep the wound clean and moist by using an antibiotic ointment.
