healing wound on face

I just had a basal cell carcinoma removed on the side of my nose and the wound about the size of a large cigarette burn  is rather unsightly --for the first 6 days I put anti-biotic ointment on and covered with a band-aid but now I'm not sure what to do--I know time is the best healer--but in the meantime should I be putting vaseline, or grape seed extract or aloe vera on the wound to make it heel faster?
Thanks!

Hi,

Do you have any other associated symptoms of itching, rash , etc.

You should try to avoid sweat collection in the areas, keep the areas clean, maintain good personal hygiene, . Apply calamine lotion at the sites. You should use a medicated sunscreen.

Consult a skin specialist for your complaints and discuss whether a demyleininzing agent would help in your case. You could also discuss about dermabrasion or laser therapy in your case with your doctor.

Let us know about how you are doing and if you have any other doubts.

Post us about what your doctor advises.

Regards.
