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.

For minor wounds there is no need for tetanus vaccination if you have already been vaccinated in the last five years.. For scratch there is no problem if you leave the sound open.
