Healing time from cauterization?

How long does it typically take to heal after cauterizations of the skin after mole removal? I have three areas that vary from nickel to quarter size that I'm waiting to heal up from. I can't cover any of them due to their location and an adhesive allergy and a couple are a bit red around the edges already. I'm keeping an eye on them, but I'm nervous about something happening to the scabbed area before the healing is far enough along.

Re: Healing time from cauterization?

Probably 10 days - 2 weeks is about normal. Are you able to keep any ointment on them?

Re: Healing time from cauterization?

The best thing you can put on them is raw unpasturized honey. You will be amazed how fast healing takes place.
