Brief Answer:
Is it still bleeding???

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I can understand your concern. But minor injuries at this age heal very quickly and very effectively. If there is no bleeding and the child is active and feeding well, you need not be overly worried.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Regards
