Open Wound - No Bandage
Hi Doctor, I got a scratch by an iron mesh, which bled for 5 minutes and seemed to heal within minutes. I then visited Nahan, a hill station in Himachal Pradesh, for two days for a wedding. I did not apply any band-aid or any other bandage on it. Am I at risk for any infection? I consulted my GP when I got the scratch and he told me my tetanus immunisation was up to date.
