My 5 month old got a hook shaped pendant in his nose. It cut his nose inside a little and bled a bit. Should we go to e.R. Just in case? Infection?

In brief: See below

If the bleeding was minimal and stopped, he does not need to go to the ed.
I would place some neosporin or Bacitracin ointment inside his nose 3 times a day for a week.
