Its compressed air...
Does air do anything to your finger? I'm guessing not, so compressed air probably won't either

using compressed air on skin can force bacteria underneath the skin, and potentially cause an infection or dermatitis

but a small exposure like that shouldnt be a problem, might just sting a bit

its not only air
also has a shitload of random chemicals that can kill you.
Quote:
Gas duster (also erroneously referred to as canned air) is a product consisting of liquified difluoroethane, trifluoroethane, or tetrafluoroethane in a spray can, with a long nozzle that enables the user to direct a precisely focused blast of gas. Gas dusters do not use compressed air, but other inert gases that are much easier to compress into a liquid state. Hydrocarbons, like butane, were often used in the past, but their flammability forced manufacturers to use fluorocarbons.
