How do you treat a facial scratch when the scab comes off too soon My 5yr old got a scratch on cheek 48 hrs ago. Dr said put Bactroban on 3x'sday. The scab rubbed off in his sleep. What to do now?

You want to put an antibiotic on it still, possibly cover with a gauze bandage but not a bandaid because the adhesive part might accidentally stick to a new scab and remove it when you change the bandaid..
