Thank you for the query.
Steri-strips are a very good idea especially if you can not visit a surgeon for stitches. However neosporin
is not necessary. It contains antibiotics which when applied to the wound has confirmed lack of effect. Only oral or intravenous antibiotics can be helpful. However no antibiotics necessary with regular wound.
A bandage is fine. Wound should be rather dry than moisturized. I suggest you to just leave it alone and let the nature to do its job. You may clean it with water and soap (really nothing antiseptic isnt necessary).
In case of redness
, swelling or discharge, surgeon visit might be necessary.
The wound healing
on the head can take from 5 to 10 days. So I suggest you to keep strips on it for 10 days and it should be fine.
Hope this will help.
