Abrasions on chin

Good morning! The last week or so I've noticed a little blood on Tuffy's chin (probably ruptured scabs from very old acne). It's not a big deal, but I don't want it to get infected. Is rubbing alcohol okay to apply on chin or should I use some sort of ointment?

Alcohol usually stings...

I would use either plain brown listerine of peroxide.

I am big fan

of coconut oil with my dogs.... I also use chlorhexidine solution on a lot of their cuts and scrapes (and inside their rope) Listerine is great too!! So many things to have on the doggy medicine shelf!
