Aquaphor or Vaseline is to be kept on your face continuously for 6 to 8 days. Any scabs should be gently soaked off. After soaking, pat the skin dry with a towel and apply more ointment over the treated area. Oozing of clear fluids, mild to moderate swelling, and a mild burning sensation may occur.
