Do I need real medicidine? I only uses Gin to

Patient

Q: Hello
I was out working today. I got a a nasty cut on my hand. It bled a lot. A real lot. I used my bandage kit but I was out of Iso-Betadine. So I used water to clean it and than I remember having bottle of gin in the back. I dosed my wound in gin. I didn't sting like I thought It would. Than I bandaged it. Am I safe now?

I cuy myself on a clean saw. Not an old rusty one.

Symptoms:  Stinging pain in my hand
