Default First Aid Advice Needed

Ok so I was sharpening some knives at work and i cut my index finger. It was a sharp knife so it sliced my skin like almost filleting it but not cutting it off. its a decent cut but not something that wouldnt stop bleeding or anything. I cleaned it with hydrogen peroxide and put a band aid on it and it stopped bleeding after about 15 mins. Now is it ok if under the skin theres a black and blue line that i dont know what it is. I was sharpening a knife so there might be trace amounts of metal in there so i dont know if thats somthing to worry about. Any one have any suggestions?

The dark colors can be unoxidized blood I believe.

Ide like to avoid doctors as much as possible. Only cause its a pain for me to schedule my time to go and also my parents would flip if they would have to take me to the doctors for something i did on accident.

if you are going to school go see the nurse if you really do not want to see docter do you know when you last tetnus shot was cause i had a a little peice of metal in me and a line was startin to go from the wound up my arm and i guess that is bad. my dad is a vet so he just put some numbing stuff on it and cut it out .
seeing a docter would be the best thing to do.

Agreed, finding out when your last tetnus jab was is a must, also try bathing it in antiseptic for a couple of days and keep t covered up, with all cuts and especially slizes they are very painful, I have had many working with sheet metal, your finger will be fine unless the Knife was rustic or dirty but an updated tetnus jab is best just for precaution.
