 Keeping Wound/Sutures Dry

I recently had some surgery performed and the doctors
advise was to keep the wounds/sutures dry for nine
days. This meant no showers/water on this area.

A year or so ago, a friend received a cut under her
eye that required sutures. Her doctor recommended
that she keep the wound/sutures moist/clean to prevent
a scab from forming. He said the scab is what forms
the scar.

I also received advise on keeping the wound moist
with vitamin E while the wound healed.

What gives...should one try to prevent a scab from
forming by cleaning and keeping the injured area
moist or should one just leave it alone?
