You can return to your daily routine immediately after treatment, though you should keep the electrocauterized skin area dry for at least 1 day. In certain location of the body or limbs, your doctor may advise for protective bandage to cover the region, preventing the wound from rubbing or friction. The wound area can be cleaned with normal saline once to twice a day, and topical medicated cream/ emollients may be encouraged by your doctor to promote healing. Over time, the wound will be covered with a small scab. Avoid picking on the scab, the scab will fall off itself 4-6 weeks later.
