I am guessing you mean like steristrips are pulling it together, which usually help keep things together while it heals from the inside. It would probably still heal if you left it open but more likely scar more. If you have someone who can help you with getting some steristrips or butterfly bandaids to pull the sides together it will heal nicer. I would keep it covered for a few days at least as it sounds like it isnt a little spot.

marlos :  Yeah! It just holds it all together so the inside can heal together better. It will be less obviously scabbed over but with the edges pulled together the tissue can heal closer without having to fill in a big gap with scar tissue.

Go back to your doctor and have them dress it and instruct you on how to care for it. There is no way for us to give you good advice over the Internet.

I would go to a doctor—urgent care, whatever, and have them dress it for you.
