    keep it clean by washing/wiping it with hydrogen peroxide, put some neosporin ointment on it, and a band-aid if you think you need it (for example if you're wearing pants and don't want them to stick to the neosporin ointment on your leg ). the better it heals, the less chance you have of a scar. you can avoid this in the future by NOT purposefully injuring yourself.

    First of all don't do it again. You will get enough injuries in this life without trying, not necessary to do it to yourself. Next wash in shower with soap and water. Next, after drying pour Hydrogen Peroxide over wound a few times til stops bubbling to make sure it is clean. Now apply Neosporin to help heal quickly and not get infected. Now, and this is important, bandage it. Bandaids, whatever-you didn't say how big it is. It needs to stay covered to heal quickly and minimize scarring. Good luck
