Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Previously, you should explain first, since when you have a wound on your chin and whether the wound felt wet or pus out?
Shallow and small wounds in general will not cause severe pain and can only feel pain when you touch the wound. Wounds that are still open usually will also feel painful when exposed to water / wet. If at this time the wound on your chin doesn't look open or is pus, then there's really nothing you need to worry about. Shallow wounds usually heal by themselves in 3-7 days (depending on the size and depth of the wound). You only need to keep your wound clean and dry, you don't need alcohol, povidone iodine, or other antiseptics. If you go outside a house with a lot of air pollution and dust, you can also cover the wound with wound plaster. When a scab has formed over the wound, do not rip or scratch the wound so that the healing of the skin goes well. If you are male, you should also not shave in the area that is injured for a while until the wound is completely dry.
If you see that your wound remains wet after 3-7 days or appears festering, you should consult a doctor so that you can evaluate and manage the wound better.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
