Question: Hey doctor I cut my thumbnail where my nails at the top on a dirty ground which I have attached an image of they were only tiny cuts and I washed them with soap and water straight away but the cuts did bleed initially but it looks only like a minor cut. I attached an image of where I cut them as well but they are no longer bleeding what are the risks of things like tetanus etc I had the shots where I was younger at 4 and possibly at 14 years old too should I worry about it?
