You know--A & D Cream (not ointment) works really great too--comes in a
tube-usually in baby dept at drug store.  But I'd let it air out a bit after
cleaning w. Peroxide.

Oh, I forgot! A holistic vet recommends Calendula Gel. It heals things very
quickly. I used it on an infected spay incision (cat) and cat bite (me).
It's amazing.

I generally clean the cut with Hydrogen Peroxide, poured directly on  
the cut.  Then either antibiotic ointment or an herbal, Golden Seal  
powder or liquid.
