Wiping over dressings that have been placed on wounds


There is something like abscesses on my leg, and the treatment is to wrap the site of the abscesses with a dressing so that water does not reach it when I do wudoo’. What is the ruling on wudoo’ in this case?.


Praise be to Allah.

Your wudoo’ is valid if you wipe over the dressing or pass water over it.
