The tree should be fine. Don't put anything on it as this can cause more harm than good. Tree wounds will generally heal themselves. The following article should be of some help to you: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/tgen/repairing-tree-bark-damage.htm

Pruning is best performed just after flowering in these trees.
