I had surgery on my leg in August. The site where they did the surgery and had the skin graft was bandaged for quite a while (including Talfa pads), maybe 4 weeks or so. The donor site where they removed the skin for the graft had some kind of gunk that made like a bandage that fell off (it was like a scab) ... at no time was this area covered and I was told to let it have as much air as possible, especilly after that "scab" type thingy fell off - so the only time I put slacks on was when I had to go outdoors.
