What aftercare is recommended post mole removal?

I had two large moles on my back and I was close to ripping them off a few times, so I decided I should have them removed by a surgeon before I do something stupid. My doctor recommended using hydrogen peroxide and band aids to cover the wound. Is there something else I can do to speed up the healing process? I kind of miss sleeping on my back.

Keeping the site moisturized with either triple antibiotic or Aquaphor, applying a small piece of saran wrap and then applying a bandaid on top will help it heal faster and your scar will be better.
