Hi , Cut my fingernail thru to the skin .?
About 1/2 way across & 1/2 way down (the nail) . Not much bleeding or pain , looks like blood under that part of the nail . Do I need to see a doctor? The risk of infection? I was using a sharp circle cutter on a drill. Thanks Jim

You might need a tetanus jab. See a Dr.

Clean it and put on a Band-Aid and it should be ok

You should be fine. Soak your finger in warm water to which epsom salts and some baking soda have been added. That will draw out anything and prevent infection.
