Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.

Cut of one forth inch is very small.
You need not worry about it.
Good that you applied anti-bacterial cream over it.
Continue the same twice daily for 3 days.
This will prevent secondary bacterial infection.

The wound will heal in a weeks time without scar formation.
So, you need not be concerned about it.

Hope this helps.
Feel free to ask if you have any more doubts.
I will be glad to answer.
