Pictures would help. Can't judge from words whether or not a scrape is 'bad' enough to call the vet.

If she's licking at it, there isn't anything you can put on it.

Without pictures any advice we give you would be worthless.

Check her teeth & make sure none are broken.
When she drinks water she'll clean it herself, then take a good look at it.
