Making masah over a gauze

Q: For the reason of taking medication through drip, I have a covering on my arm just below the elbow. This is a plastic tap held by gauze and cannot be removed for at least two days. Is wiping with a wet hand on top of the gauze when performing wudhu correct?

A: Yes.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
