Ouch
Clean it up and put an antibiotic cream on it and keep an eye on it. Try keeping the area clean and with the cream on it. It will be fine if you can keep it from getting dirty and infected.

Also keep the flies off anyway you can. I would use neosporin or the like, then cover the whole mess with vaseline. It will heal...and welcome to TFO
