Good idea: Neosporin unless allergic to it will help the cut Eac peson is different but it should heal within a week If it gets worse follow up with provider

Neosporin: Neosporin does almost nothing more than plain Vaseline does to heal wounds, namely it moisturizes the wound which helps to heal the skin.
