I have a very small lanced boil that I've been re-packing with gauze daily. Would it hurt to leave gauze in for 2 days just once or better to leave ou?

Leave out: Gauze really serves to keep the wound open so it can heal from the inside out. Unfortunately, each time you pull it out, it tends to pull out some of the healing granulation tissue with it, and if you leave it longer, more tissue will likely attach to it and so be avulsed when you remove it. If the external opening is open enough, may be better leaving it out or using silva sorb gel. ...Read more
