Non-stick dressings are best for a wet wound, but protecting a sealed, healing wound is still important. I prefer Viva table napkins and cloth tape as a soft pad to protect from re-injury.

Infection? Pfft. Germs build the immune system.

I really wouldn't recommend this.

If you put tissue paper on an open wound the tissue paper will get stuck in the wound causing a route for infection.

When you come to remove the tissue it will pull the scab off reopening the wound and/or leave bits of tissue paper in the wound.
