MOHS Surgery Question

I had the surgery yesterday, and I have a few questions to ask. The cancer was 2 centimeters, and I have 20 stitches. The cancer was between the nose and cheek but I need to know how or where to place the bandage. I did a some what ok job with it, but how do I put it on for real. The surgical site is itchy and I did put Hydrogen Proxide on it, but I have noticed that the vasaline makes me itch, how does one combat that?
I had the prodisc surgery at level L4-5 on October 9,2003. I have L3-4 and L5S1 starting to go bad... but will look into that in the future. Epideral blocks are helping.

Re: MOHS Surgery Question

did your dctor tell you take off the bandage? did he or she tell you to use hydrogen peroxide? I would do exactly what they say. Usually Neosporin is recommended and vaseline ot keep the wound moist. If it dries out you have a better chance of having a scar.
