Hello ma'am.

Although the bleeding has stopped, there exists an open wound in an area already highly susceptible ti infections.

I would advise you to visit a doctor, who after a physical examination will decide whether you require stitches or not and also prescribe prophylactic antibiotics for local application or systemic administration.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
