This is going to sound odd, but rub olive oil into the skin. It helps to keep the skin supple and actually feeds it, which helps the healing. I noticed a big difference when I used it after my 2nd wrist op.
Hmmm interesting idea, I do have LOTS of olive oil since it's all I cook with. I'll try that next time, but for now it healed up finally on the surface, and the inner weird hard lump that was huge is now almost gone too. Pain free. Damn that was not a fun process and I"m hoping it doesn't happen to me again. Can't figure out how it there the first time!

Slight addition, don't apply to open or seeping wounds! Works best on scarred or newly healed skin that is still a little fragile.

That makes total sense! The thought of oil on my skin makes me queasy a little but we'll see

You don't need to use a lot, just enough to rub into the skin. If it starts trickling down then you've used too much.

Oh trust me it won't ever do that

I have a problem with oily textures. It would be very little.

I tried that on my butt [radiation butt sunburn from my recent bout with cancer] and while it normally works on my regular patches of exposed skin sunburn, didn't work there - I found medline makes an 'herbal' silicon barrier cream that works beautifully. I think the overall moistness of the area was hyperhydrating and making the skin tear like wet paper.
