  1. Leave initial bandage on for 24 hours.
  2. After 24 hours clean the wound gently with a Q-tip soaked in peroxide and remove the crust that has formed; then apply antibiotic ointment (Polysporin or bacitracin).
  3. Clean wound twice daily until stitches come out.
  4. If after initial removal of bandage within 24 hours of surgery there is oozing of blood, apply firm pressure for 15-30 minutes. The oozing should stop; if it doesn't please contact our office. If bleeding is profuse go to the nearest emergency room.
  5. Mild redness of the wound edges is normal, but if there is associated swelling or pain please contact our office.
