The bandage makes sense to impose, if extensive abrasions, skin is damaged a considerable portion - it will help protect the wound surface from accidental damage repeated. But remember that it is necessary to apply a bandage to the wound dried up, cover the crust to the bandage from sticking to the wound. Otherwise, removing the bandage, you sderet skin, and the wound open again. Under the wound dressing can be applied to medical ointment.
If a child is going to play on the playground, standing close any open wound (even a scratch or abrasion) loosely bandage. When the child returns home, remove the bandage.
