Tegaderm....it can even be "shingled" to cover over injuries larger than the individual sheets. Just make sure that the adhesive edges are either on clean, dry skin or another sheet (if shingled).
If you do it right, you should be able to leave it on for a couple of days and even take showers with it on. If the wound is "weeping" significantly, "draw" a line of antibiotic ointment across the lower edge of the sheet (to prevent it from sticking there) and then tape a gauze pad at that "drain" you just created. It's a LOT easier to just change that one gauze pad that's NOT stuck to the wound ;-)
