Wound Care Instructions Following Cryosurgery
The area treated with liquid nitrogen may form a blister. You do not need to bandage the area until the blister breaks (which may be a few days). When the blister breaks, begin daily dressing changes as follows:

Clean the area with tap water. Apply Bacitracin or Vaseline or Aquaphor healing ointment over the entire wound. Cover the wound with an appropriate sized Band-Aid or a sterile, non-stick pad (Telfa). Repeat these instructions at least once a day until the wound has completely healed.


It is an old wives tale that a wound heals better when exposed to the air. If kept clean and covered with ointment and a bandage, the wound will heal faster, with less pain, and with a nicer cosmetic result.
