"Antiseptic" cream: is often just for initial cleansing of wound and not for daily dressing.It is too caustic for daily dressing and ,used daily, can impede wound healing.I recommend a triple antibiotic cream for daily use.

Varies: Wound healing is dependent on host factors such as nutritional status.If there are no complications such as infection,it should heal quickly. Keep it clean and dry.
