If the wound is recent, flush it for at least five minutes with lukewarm running water. For older wounds, it's recommended that the wound area be washed with antibacterial soap. Neosporin can be applied once the wound is clean. Keep it wrapped with gauze,which will protect the wound. Once a day clean the wound and reapply antibiotic ointment.

This could be caused by ingrown hairs. It may be parasitic or fungal. Keep dog's chin clean and replace plastic bowls with glass or metal ones. Antibiotics should help, too.

First pop out major bumps and apply medicine. It is hard to treat them because they will get them laying using their chins. We can use soft beds for them.
