In brief: It can be used

to put on the wound, but you need to determine how deep the wound is, tetanus history, do you need sutures, is anything damaged due to depth….
.if superficial then yes it is good, but you should not be allergic to shellfish.

In brief: Too harsh

Try something milder like neosporin, etc.
