Incision question

Hi all. I had an L5 S1 decompression & fusion on 2/14/12. The incision is healing nicely, but it is painful most of the time. I am not wearing jeans or any other ill fitting clothing. My back brace causes it a lot of pain. I have been having my partner rub Lubriderm lotion on it, but I am wondering if there is something better/different I should use? Vaseline? Neosporin? It is completely sealed up, just has a couple little pieces of scab on it here and there. Thanks for reading this. :-)
