Hi, after cauterisation, there is a open wound. For the prevention of secondary infection , you should avoid to wash the face for atleast two days. Then onward you take complete bath and wash the face with dettol added water.. 10 drops in bucket.You can take bath with warm water.. You avoid to wash the face with soap till complete healing. Do not remove the crust of cauterised lesions to fave good scar.I am sure that your doctor must have given antibiotics and antiinflammatory drugs for recovery of the cauterised lesions... This much would be helpful to you... Ok
