How bad is a cut with oleander sap in it? If it looks infected today?
Yesterday I fell and cut my knee ( one ml deep) whilst gardening. I was cutting oleander tree and that's what I fell on. Today there is no more cut just a greenish-yellow muck and a red tender outline. Do I need a doc or just antiseptic and keeping clean?

I would suggest just keeping it really clean (but do let it heal) and changing the band-aid\whatever to make sure it stays clean. If it doesn't get better in a few days you should definitely see a doctor.

you need to keep it very clean
wash your hands with soap and water
wash the cut with soap and water
clean 3x a day at least with rubbing alchol 70%
aply a new clean bangage every day
use polysporn cream
wash hands again
if it gets worse or doesnt heal in a few days see a doctorSource(s): paramedic
