In brief: Wash cut immediatly

Wash cut immediately and treat with antibiotic cream like otc neosporin, hep c is not common with local contact.

In brief: HIGHLY UNLIKELY

It is VERY unlikely to contract Hep C from dried blood.
But if you are concerned, to ease your mind, wait 3 months and have your doctor test you for it.
