Some superficial wounds just need cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning the area with salt water (1/2 tsp salt in a cup of warm water (ideally boiled and cooled)) is always a good first aid measure. Creams and gels can help protect damaged skin on areas with little hair, salves and balms are easier to use on the paws. These will protect the area while the skin heals. Very fresh and superficial cuts can simply be disonfected withLeucillin or colloidal silver. For areas that are sore and sticky, like lip folds or skin folds, powders with neem are the best option and neem will also discourage fly-strike in rabbits and livestock. Most superficial uncomplicated cuts and wounds heal within 10 days, if you are worried about your pet, consult with your vet.. Dr S Reynolds Dr VetMed MRCVS

This dusting powder really helps my dog with his itchy paws, rub or dust on to skin and within minutes he's not itchy. Great for grass mites and any biting insects as they don't like the Neem. I have a much happier pooch now.
