If you're referring to a scratch in the skin in the area above what would be the eyebrow in a human, at most gently cleaning it with mild soap and warm water or peroxide should do it.  If you use soap and water, make sure to rinse the area thoroughly. If you either wash the area or use peroxide, make sure you don't get this in your dog's eyes. That could create more problems than the scratch itself. If the scratch is in the delicate skin on your pet's eyelid, have your vet treat the dog because that's a sensitive area and  some dogs don't like people messing with it. Better to let someone skilled in the correct way to do this  to keep the dog or someone else from getting hurt.
