Thank you for the information.

Small cut can heal by conservative management.

When it feels numb, there can be an injury to a nerve.

Or there can be pressure on the nerve from the swelling.

Swelling can be from a bleeding inside though there is no external bleeding.

It needs to be checked by doctor asap.

You need to guard against any infection too.

Please keep it covered with a sterile gauze.

Neosporin cream can be applied to prevent infection.

If there is pain you can take paracetamol.

Tetanus immunization status needs to be checked.

If you have not taken it within last 5 years, you will need booster.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.
