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.

    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.
