Large Scrape on Head

My horse Urel somehow managed to scrape a chunk of skin out of his forehead in his stall. Any suggestions on what to do with it? And any ideas how to get the hair to grow back? Its pretty big and like right in the centre of his head.

I know that most people hate to see those cuts and scrapes that are part of a horse's life, but honestly, the best thing to do with these is clean them, put on some antibacterial cream like neosporin, and just let nature heal it on its own. It can take 1-2 months for it to heal and all the hair to grow back, but often the more you mess with it, the longer it takes.
