Open cut with no skin on the area

Patient : I have an open cut on my finger, skin is completely gone ,in which a doctor prescribed Fucidin. Anyway he told me to keep it covered for a few days. The gauze he told me to wrap it with gets dried and stuck in cut it hurts terribly to change the wrappings everyday. Is there anything I can do so it doesn't stick and how long will it take to heal? The cut is about the size of a quarter and is on the side of my right ring finger.
