A Wound Debate

So when you have a wound--lets say you scraped yourself pretty badly on concrete--how should you take care of it?

The two differing opinions are:
A. keep it uncovered so that it can dry out and scab. Don't put anything on it (unless its antibiotics) so it can dry quicker.
B. keep it covered as much as possible. Wash it with water or hydrogen peroxide or etc daily.

A or B? Why? (scientifically speaking and so forth)

And is there any special methods to prevent bad scars?
