Our vet definitely does not recommend any "human" over-the-counter antibiotic
cream. For cuts and wounds (including bite wounds from another GP), she
recommends frequent cleaning with warm water. If the wounds are infected
(red, puffy, warm to touch), she instructed us to add a capful of hydrogen
peroxide to a basin of water and use that to cleanse the wounds.

When Hazel was very sick this past spring with many small abcesses on her
lower belly and butt area, the vet sold us a topical antibiotic to apply after
bathing her.

It depends on the antibiotics involved. If unsure do not use it. In
general, avoid the use of antibiotics on any wound unless it's infected
already or is especially nasty/messy/deep. It's better to see a cavy
competent vet, (exotic vets tend to be better than regular ones btw)
rather than to home treat, unless you really do know what you are doing
and fully understand the health issue you're treating, unless you have
no other choice.

My Vet recommended Polysporin Triple for my rabbit and I also used that on
my guinea pigs and it works well. You may want to give it a try.
