Hi, keep the wound clean and dry. If any bleeding is there avoid it by applying pressure. Don't put anything on it. You need to take tetanus injection. If it is paining you can take painkillers. You may need to take antibiotic tablets precautionally to prevent wound infection. Consult general physcian for furthur evaluation and treatmemt.
