    If you are only eating your food, then no big deal. If you are preparing food for others, then wash your hands.

    Nope. You should wash before touching the wound. After does not keep germs out of the wound.

    You would wash ONE finger??? What are you 5? You need to wash the open wound. Put Neosporin on it and bandage it AFTER washing both hands. The germs on your finger could go into the wound and cause infection.

      You have it azz backwards. The WOUND can get infected from you touching it with a germ covered finger. You wash both hands well then bandage the wound THEN eat.
