How do I prevent acne formation around the injury area after open-heart surgery?
In general, acne does not usually form around any injured area. Thus this will require no special precautions. Just follow your operating doctor’s instructions about post-operative wound care.
It is critical that you do not compromise wound healing by self-medication or treatment.
Should acne really occur, then you can consider active treatment. See the Acne section for details of the various effective acne treatments available.
Hope this helps!
