treament of a pucture wound

My 11yr old Begal has a pucture wound on her head with the skin torn down between her eyes. Bleeding has stopped. Clean the wound with warm water and peroxide. Applied neosporin in the hole and around the area. I have no doggie ins. Of course, if the wound can not heal. I will go to the Vet! how do i keep the wound free of infection? should i wrap her head with a bandage? keep apply peroxide/neosporin? what can i give her for the pain? thanks jane

Insurance or not, she must have a vet sew it up ASAP & give her antibiotics or it WILL get infected.
