Ask the vet first. I used it once and I think the vet said that it can kill the good bacteria in their gut. She had said as long as he wasn't licking it it was okay but they clean themselves so well I stopped immediately I could not take a chance.

I would personally just keep it cleaned with betadine (povidone iodine). Antibiotic based products can really screw with rabbit's GI tract and even cause them to go into stasis in extreme cases.

Agreed - don't use it if there's a chance she could ingest it. Plain soap and water, diluted betadine or even a very diluted tea tree oil and water solution would work if you're worried about infection.
