Neosporin ointment, TT injection, Tablet Diclo.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us.
I have gone through your query.
If possible kindly upload the photos for better assessment.

If it is bleeding, kindly apply pressure to stop bleeding. Apply ice pack to it, it will reduce bleeding. Wash with antiseptic soap. Apply neosporin ointment for faster healing.
I would suggest you to take TT injection.
For pain I would suggest you to take tablet Diclo 50 mg twice daily for 3 days, this will take care of pain. This measures will resolve your symptom.

Hope this helps.
Take care.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWER. I HAVE HAD CUTS LIKE THIS AND WORSE SO MANY TIMES BEFORE. NEVER EVER HAD THIS KIND OF PAIN. OBVIOUSLY THERE IS SOME KIND OF DISORDER HERE. TT INJECTION. UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD I TAKE IT.IT IS ALMOST MID NIGHT HERE AND I DON'T WANT TO SPENT MY NIGHT AT A HOSPITAL EMERGENCY. OR SHOULD I ?. THERE IS NO BLEEDING NO SWELLING OR COLOR CHANGING. JUST SHARP PAIN.
