Hi, thanks for writing to us.

A cut of 0.5cms without any profuse bleeding can be managed at home with cleaning the part with diluted antiseptic lotion and applying antiseptic cream.

The child may require a doctors examination if the wound is bleeding profusely or has come in contact with dirt or has a large clot.

Thank you, hope i have cleared your doubt, regards.
