Your question was in dermatology.

You can always find me in medical by request and save time.

If it is a deep cut it needs sutures.l

Without this, there might be nothing at all you can do to prevent secondary infection

as well as scarring that is not necessary.

Go to urgent care.

It is not self help or home treatmetn.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
