Hello,

You need a detailed local examination to exclude a piece of glass within. Cleaning of the wound and assessment require to see whether there is any need of stitches.

If the wound is deep, needful drugs and Tetanus (TT) injection advised. Please consult a surgeon as early as possible.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
