DR???: Did you go to ER or see a DR?? Shower or bath, rinse off daily. Any dirt ground into skin? Sounds like you will be grounded about a week. Keep lubricated. Vaseline or Aquaphor are good.

Depends: A rash from scraping of the skin on a rough surface can be very painful. Loosing time from work depends on how deep the lacerations (cuts) are and if they are infected.

I have road rash on my palms and I am keeping it well covered with ointment. How long until the pain stops? I cannot shower
Water is good for it: Keep greased with vaseline or Aquaphor. Not bacitracin or neosporin. Won't be long. Depends on how deep and how much dirt was ground into it. You neglected the crucial detail of how long since the injury.
Antibiotic ointment: Clean the rash with soap and water. Soak the rash in clean water twice a day and pat dry. Apply either Bacitracin or polysporin (bacitracin and polymyxin) ointment twice a day to the open or weeping skin until healed. Watch for signs of infection such as pus, redness spreading or increasing pain and fever.
Keep clean: Gently clean with mild soap and water; avoid products like peroxide and alcohol which will not only kill the bad bugs, but also the cells trying to regrow tissue and fight infection. Otherwise, keep he wound moist with products like vaseline. Antibiotic ointment can be used if he wound is red, draining, or warm...But if that is true you really should see your dr.
