Primary house hold treatment for bruise on dog nose

We just discovered that our 11 months old dog (Border Collie and Husky) has a small bruise (size: 2-3 mm) on his nose, which is pinkish in colour and a layer of thin skin is off (most likely due to any abrasion or friction). Before heading for expensive vet call, is there any house hold item we could use to treat that bruise ?

It might be a dumb question, but I would like to know, can human ointment like "Polysporin" is applicable for a dog ?
