If they packed it then you should be returning to have the packing removed?

When I had my abcess, I had to go in and have the packing removed every day, the incision cleaned and new gauze packed in. I had to do that every day for 32 days.

Yea I'm sure. But I'm also sure they told you to leave it covered. But it's your body. Did they do a culture as well? Could be MRSA which is highly contagious.
