It is important to keep the scab moisturized to avoid irritation and itchiness. However, using a chemical-rich moisturizer is not advised. To keep the scan moisturized you must use natural ingredients such as tea tree oil, aloe vera, etc.
Use a bandage:
Do not keep the scab exposed and instead apply a bandage over it to prevent any type of infection.
There are also some dermatologists who recommended treatment for dried pimples. The doctor would offer you an over-the-counter ointment for the scab. Also in case of infection, you will get a course of antibiotics prescribed by the dermatologist. It is important to read the signs of the infection or easy and effective treatment. If you feel any pain, itchiness or any sort of secretion around the scab, it is probably an infected site.
