Hello,
Well as you describe you should clean the wound with betadine solution.
Put a large gauze pad over the wound and apply pressure for ten minutes.
Apply an antibacterial ointment and cover it with a sterile gauze also.
Keep an eye out for infection, which would be redness, increasing pain, pus drainage, swelling and warmth of the surrounding skin. If these develop then you will need to have it checked out.
If pain is persistent more than 20 minutes then it would assume that it is possible that a small capillary is oozing and you need an additional stitch in the wound.
You will need to return to the clinic or go to ER.
Hope this helps.
Feel free for further queries.
Positive feedback is appreciated.
Thanks.
