Not sure why you listed all of the blood tests. If you are immunocompromised for any reason (cancer treatment, chronic infection like HIV, or TB, or other chronic illness) an seemingly simple laceration can pose a risk of infection. Treatment superficial cut should include cleaning the wound daily with soap and water and coverage with an appropriate bandage. IF redness develops seek treatment.
