Thanks for the query,

Dont worry just fold a clean washed cloth and put it in the place of wound.

The purpose of gauge is to prevent entry of infection,
This can very well be done by using a cloth.

If possible start taking some oral antibiotic,
This wiil give you additional protection.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
