True, Daddio. That's why I asked. Because I have Mom in the back of my head saying "keep it bandaged, and keep putting Neosporin on it!" while my own tendency is that if I leave it exposed for a couple of hours, it'll stop oozing and scab over, and then it'll heal on its own with much less attention from me.
But I also don't really want it to scar too badly, so I want to do what's right.
