Hello and thank you for using this site to help you. I am sorry that your question was not picked up sooner.

This happens quite often with the shock collars. At this time it is advised that collar be left off until the wound is healed.

Wash the area daily and apply some chlorhexidine to the area. If you don't have Chklorhexidine you can use a triple antibiotic such as Basitration. Do make sure the ointment does not contain zinc oxide.
