In brief: Keep it clean
Soap and water, maybe topical antibiotic ointment.
Clean daily. Don't pick at it and don't use hydrogen peroxide because it destroys the healing tissue in the wound.

In brief: Cleaning
Clean, clean, clean! rinse debris from the wound, consider seeing a doctor for a tetanus booster and watch for signs of infection.
Topical vaseline will help protect the wound as it heals. Sometimes a short course of a topical antibiotic may reduce infection risk. However, consider seeing your doctor.
