Hi there...it would have been better if you had posted a photo. If the wound is plain and no pus discharge is present then plain topical antibiotics creams like mupirocin and fusidic acid cream. If there is pus discharge, then you will require oral antibiotics like ammoxicillin and clavulunic acid 625 mg twice daily for five days. But it is better to consult a dermatologist or general surgeon once for further evaluation.
