Is it best to keep a Scab dry or moist?

a few days ago i accidentally burnt my skin, the next day i developed a very thin scab crust over where the skin layer had come off, its now almost 4 days and the dark scab its still present, should i let it dry or keep it moist with Vaseline?

though the scab in a very thin layer, it is still stuck to the skin so much so that i believe it will damage my skin if i try peeling it. A scar is something i defiantly don't want.
