In brief: Multi-layer dressing

Use sterile dressing and antibiotic ointment over the exposed skin to prevent infection and promote healing.
Use a second layer of dressing or gauze. In between the first and second layer apply a lubricant such as vaseline or petroleum jelly. Secure those layers with a roll gauze and tape. All of this goes under your sock and should prevent pain when walking.

In brief: Cover the part that

Peeled with a bandage.
Elbow band-aids are great for covering large areas.
