Scraped hand and bled. Why does it hurt? What is wrong?

I scraped my hand on a rusty nail, not bad, just a small amount of blood . It doesn t hurt at all but a day or two after that my ear started to hurt a little, and at times I can t hear out of it at all. Recently, about a day after that started, my jaw started hurting on the left side to close it all the way, any idea what s wrong?

rusty nail scratch should not be neglected , it can cause tetanus. I advice you for a TT injection 2 dose taken one month apart which prevent tetanus infection..and your ear and jaw problems look like different problem which look like ear infection involving sinus...i suggest you take amox orally for 3-5 days and use nasal decongestant nasivion...use dry local heat to reduce ear severe pain use ear toilet for discharge
