In brief: Wash and Watch.

As long as you are in pretty good health with no real heath issues, You can probably get away with home treatment.
Wash it and apply topical antibiotic. Apply a dressing as necessary. If the wound shows signs of unusual inflammation, then have it treated by a professional.
