I know it's probably too late to be helpful now, but for the future:
If there are open wounds, you should clear any particulate substrate from the enclosure until they heal over - you don't want sand or seed getting in the wound. You can also apply an antibiotic ointment like Neosporin or use a chlorhexidine spray or ointment (Nolvasan, etc). If the injury is bad, if it gets worse rather than better, or if the lizard's behavior changes for the worse, I would recommend a vet visit.

You won't be able to put these two together again. They will fight.
