Hi there.

Regarding your concern, don’t worry. Minor cut will not cause any problem later in life.

There is no need to apply any ointment in cut area. Just keep the scrotum clean and wash it with good antiseptic soaps; nothing more than that is needed.

Enjoy and don't worry.

Hope my answer is reassuring. Let me know if you have any more queries. If you found my response helpful please close this discussion. Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks and Regards
