Just wipe it with peroxide. By now, whatever could infect it has already gotten in. Usually, this will not be a big deal, though. IT will heal on its own, as long as it hasn't been "ringed" of a section of bark. That is, if there is continuity of bark from bottom to top.

If it is just an axe wedge, it will likely heal. Can you include a photo? This can help me to see the damage and help you a little better.
