Clean it/abx: I would clean it often with soap & tepid water. You can apply an over the counter antibiotic cream or ointment. A loose bandage between cleanings covered by a sock can avoid getting it dirty. Be sure to view the area several times a day. If the area has increasing redness or drainage have his doc check it. It will likely heal okay in a week or so.
