I would go. The risk of infection due to germs on a skinning knife getting into a cut is significant. Better safe than sorry.

If you haven't gone yet, you should go now. After hours clinic or ER if you have to.

fingers are fine, they were hurting due to inflamation in the joints. cough is still here but the soar throat is down to nothing but a itch in the back of my throat. doc says im fine although maybe a little paranoid lol. sorry it took so long to respond.

Last year working on a kitty I cut my thumb knuckle really BAD. Had no choice about going to ER after the wife seen it :-)
Glad I did, got tetnus shot and they bufferflyed it and used 50' of wrap after a really good washing. We all examined what is in the thumb as it looked kinda like a 3D pix. :-) Now a year later and my wak job is still red and sensitive if rubbed on.
