Incision Issues

I'm sorry if the answer to this is on the website... I looked around and couldn't find anything.

A week ago I had a cyst incised and drained... the first night they put a gauze wick in, and removed the wick and squeezed the cyst out the next morning. I still have the incision (I guess that qualifies it as a sinus), and I keep gauze on it and sit in warm water two or three times a day to let it drain.

The draining has slowed quite a bit, and I went from finding a lot of *stuff* in the bathtub to just a little or nothing at all... so I think I am almost healed, but I can't tell. The pain is almost gone, too- I went from Vicodin to regular ibuprofen to no painkillers at all. My question is, when do I start letting the incision close? If anyone happens to know, I'd be grateful! :)
