In brief: Cleanse
If simple, shallow, cleanse wound and cover with dry dressing.
If gapped may use a steristrip to approximate. If deep or long, over a joint, any change in sensation, a bite laceration, dirty mechanism or any impraired range of motion see a surgeon. Be sure you are up to date on tetanus immunization.
