How many days should I keep the area plastered post mole cauterization ?

Hi docter I had about 34 moles cauterizes all over my body on monday the 9th of April. I clean the areas 2 times per day and apply an antibiotic cream and then cover with small plasters. For how many days should I keep them covered with a plaster? I know the best healing takes place when wounds are kept moist. Thank you!

Thanks for writing to us.
Usually the raw areas after cauterisation heal in 6-7 days depending on the vascularity of the area where the cauterisation is done. You can stop using the plaster once the thin pink fresh skin appears in the area of scar.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
