If you're going to keep it, house it in a minnium tank of 10 gallons. Suitable substrates are sand, plantation soil with no fertelizers, fir bark chips, constructive cork, and a reptile specific carpet. Feed it small mealworms, crickets, fruitflies, and even small waxworms. Give it cork rounds and tiles along with slate or sandstone slabs. Offer it a food dish with crested/day gecko food (they will it it) and a shallow water dish. Temps should be 75-85 F ambient with a hotspot of 90-97 F. The heat should be from a UTH mounted on a side of the tank. For the wound, apply Silvidine on a Q-tip. No extra UV light is needed, but if you want to grow.plants, you will need a growlight made for plants. Also provide a piece of driftwood or Mopani wood for a shelter and something to climb on.
Hope this helps,

It would help, if he was still alive.

I am sorry to hear about your loss.
We have those little guys out here in the desert as well. It is my experience, that as long as there are people around, and warm spaces to go during the winter, these little guys can live very well in the wild.

Its a house gecko and they rarely live long in captivity. Will eat small bugs around the light on porches in Florida and will eat smaller lizards.

I have these dudes chilling all over my house. If I go out to smoke at night, I'll see them hanging around looking for their next meal. I'm in S Louisiana, and they're pretty common.

Sad turn of events...

We have them all over out here. I heard one chirping tonight.

That gecko looks just like the house geckos here in Louisiana.
