puncture type wound in ear

So my doberman teagan somehow ended up with a small puncture type wound (doesn't go all the way through) in her ear. I have been keeping an eye on it to make sure it doesn't get infected however, it isn't getting any better either. Our other dog smokey will not leave it alone he sits there and licks it continuously. So my questions would be how do I keep him from licking it so it can heal annd what would be a good cheap product or concoction to put on it to help heal it. It does look a little inflamed but doesn't seem to hurt her I can pull on her ear push on the sore and what not she just sits there. This isn't something I would take her to the vet for however if it is still not healed in the next month I will be taking her in.

I don't remember any names of products, but there is "nasty" stuff out there jsut for this type of thing. Try just calling your vet and asking a tech what would be good to use. Most vets will answer questions over the phone for established clients.
If you have a petsmart, tsc, pet supply place close by go in and look.
The products are to keep animals from licking wounds or chewing cords and what not. Most home made mixes I have heard of call for cayenne pepper and this will really sting at irritate the wound. Other than that, seperate the dogs for several days until the wound is better.

BARREL once you get the other dog from licking wound if it doesnt show any signs of healing that tells me there is an object in the hole. I had a dog that had a wound on his ear, wouldnt heal worth a poo went to vet come to find out it was a bebee pellet. Not saying its that but something may be in the hole. And don't worry your other dog has the cleanest mouth around lol.

Ive checked and cleaned the wound a few times there isnt anything in it I believe since the other dog likes to bite her ears he just caught it. Im not so worried about him infecting it just that he keeps licking it and it seems to be irritating it as its fairly red
