In brief: First aid

For a minor puncture wound, wash it with soap and warm water, apply pressure to stop bleeding, apply an antiseptic such as Bacitracin or neomycin (both sold over the counter) and apply a clean dry dressing or just leave it open to air to heal.
You should get a tetanus vaccination if you're not up to date.
