Your injured area should be kept moist. Use antibiotic ointment and kept covered most of the time. It will be pink and red with a whitish layer that often peels off during dressing changes. Itching is the sign of healing not that a higher power hates you. Benadryl spray, gel and tablets help. DO NOT SCRATCH IT! If you do the newly formed skin will form little blisters that can easily become infected. The little white pimple looking things are just new hairs growing in leave them . It will look nasty for sure just relax it takes up to 7-14 days to fully heal rub it with alcohol once a day and dont cover it.If u do the area will become wet leave it open .

It generally starts as a few small spots then grows to look like bruises. Take a clear glass and press it against the rash. If the rash doesn't fade, it is a sign that it is a meningitis rash.
