Cut on eyelid, nick like while cutting bangs. What shall i use to clean it?

Hi - I just got a tiny cut on my eyelid - more like a nick, while cutting my bangs. It's less than half an inch and right in the center of eyelid near crease. No blood, just minute amount of clear fluid there. Can't afford to see dr. My question is, what do I clean it with? Then I was going to apply an antibiotic ointment. THANKS

Hi Friend I am Dr Bilal and I am an Ophthalmologist
Welcome to Health Care Magic
I would like to answer your question and your satisfaction is my goal .

First of all I hope that the cut on your eyelid is not deep . You can use Alcohol Swab (which contain 70% of isopropyl alcohol) as an antiseptic over the cut and then apply Polymyxin B Sulfate Ointment ( Antibiotic Ointment ) over the cut . Apply the Ointment after every eight hours . It would be perfectly alright with 2-3 days .

I Hope You will find my answer helpful.

Good Luck
God Bless You

Best Regards .
