You should clean gently the torn skin with antiseptic solution(betadine).
And put some pressure with sterile gauze/clean cotton cloth.
If there is bleeding then pressure can help it to stop.
Also you should apply OTC Polysporin ointment on it.
Avoid wearing tight shoes to prevent friction.
Take OTC Advil for pain.
Tetanus toxoid shot should be updated also.
If you get some swelling,redness increasing over the time then see your doctor for a clinical exam to rule out infection and prescription of antibiotics can be helpful.

Hi,You should use hydrogen peroxide/betadine solution to clean wound.Putting pure rubbing alcohol on a fresh wound is not good and painful also.If you don’t have other antiseptic then you can dilute alcohol in water and then use it.Also take Advil for pain and inflammation.Avoid pressure on it now.And you can elevate your foot while sleeping.Also walk tomorrow with light pressure.
