    Default WDYT: plastic dressing with gel to prevent scab?

    I'm a bit confused with this "keep wound moist to prevent scab" method I've heard.

    DS8 has a scrape (fell off scooter on road) on his elbow and I've had the clear plastic tape stuff on with gel & it seems to have prevented the scab but it's so painful for DS when we change the dressing!

    It's now a pink colour and I think we have bypassed the can scab stage, but he's just not keen to put another clear dressing on (me either!! 😢)

    What do you suggest we do from here- just a normal bandaid? Will it still scab over?

    Also just wanting to know (for next time) what ppl think about this method??

    Hi lbam - I work in this industry and use the types of dressings you're talking about.

    I'll reply when at home tonight (supposed to be writing notes on my computer at work at the moment)
