Puppy has a scratch on her face

Our puppy has a scratch on her face. It's not too big, and it doesn't seem to bother her. It keeps healing and scabbing, but then I guess she scratches it and it starts bleeding again. Is there anything I can put on it to help it heal faster or at least keep it from getting infected? Like neosporin for a person? Or should I just take her to the vet?
