Default Port wine stain

I'm 18 years old and I have a PWS above my left eye that I had treated with a PDL laser for the first time 10 days ago. After a day or two a scab started to appear and the skin was very dry and it was cracking. When i put a paper tissue on it it was bloody. Then i started to use vaseline on it and after a few days the scab fell off but now the skin below is very dry again and it is peeling so i have to have vaseline on there 24 hours per day or it will peel off again. What should I do?

Call the doctor and ask. I don't think they usually recommend vaseline, but I'm not sure. The doctor's nurse should be able to tell you what to put on it.
