Wound Care after Trial

I am 1 day after my trial and not given any any instructions on what to do after the trial beyond....you can take a shower today. Do you do anything in particular with the wound? Clean with soap, Polysporin? The holes look normal....one a little redder than the other. It was kind of interesting when they took it out, I had the stimulator still on and it gave me a jolt when he pulled it out - it didn't hurt but I jumped.

Unfortunately, I didn't have the results that I had hoped so now I have quite a decision to make. I will make another post at some time to explain all the circumstances but I just wanted to ask about this first.
