Patient :Hello, a few days ago I slipped while cooking and cut myself. It is about 4 inches long and shallow, maybe 1/4 of an inch and the knife was clean. I have been cleaning it twice a day with hydrogen peroxide and neosporin and bandaging it with butterfly strips and then covering it with gauze. The bleeding stopped and there is nothing unusual I just want to check to see if this is sufficient care before going to a doctor. Thank you.
