Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, such symptoms may not be due to blade cut injury but this could be allergic reaction, but care was need to be taken at the time of laceration, like tetanus vaccination, antibiotic if this was taken then no need to worry, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.
