Hello there......, wash the wound thoroughly with soap and water. After you clean the wound, apply an antibiotic cream to it and then bandage the area. If the wound is deep, bleeds profusely or shows signs of infection, Consult your Physician for further treatment... I would also recommend that you get a tetanus booster if the wound is significant and it has been more than five years since you last received a tetanus shot. Get tetanus toxoid without fail...
