I can imagine your fears....If you insist its not deep and since you didnt attach a picture....I can only advise regular cleaning with clean water and a plaster type dressing...if its too large for a basic plaster,then your hospital needs to dress it for you with clean sterile dressing. you DONT need antibiotics at this point and will not have any benefit if you take them. so dont worry,make sure you clean it and dress it.you may use an antiseptic soap to wash it.
hope that has been helpful. All the best sir.
