Really old thread but anyway, I would wash the wound with Hibicleanse or similar antibacterial soap(mild soap).
Apply Neosporin and depending on where the wound is, it may need to be wrapped or not....better to let the air get to it...wounds heal faster when not wrapped for long periods of time, especially if the wound wrap is too tight, may be squeezing on blood vessels, hindering circulation.
Most birds heal themselves pretty well, if the wound isn't life threatening.
