Are there waterproof dressings that I can place on the area and help heal the wound and also sit up in my wheelchair for sometime during the day?

Thank for choosing HCM, Simple sterilised dressing would be well, do not apply anything on wound, put the sterilised gauze on wound pack it properly from all the side with sticking plaster ( Non reactive) sprinkle lot of talcum powder around the dressing,, will help the wound in healing, Have nice day
