Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic.
Local application of Mupirocin ointment twice daily will prevent infection and helps in healing.
Any wound over the face heals quickly because of rich blood supply of the face.
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Please feel free to ask any more queries if required
Take care
