1. Stop the bleeding. Minor cuts and scrapes usually stop bleeding on their own. If they don't, apply gentle pressure with a clean cloth or bandage. Hold the pressure continuously for 20 to 30 minutes and if possible elevate the wound. Don't keep checking to see if the bleeding has stopped because this may damage or dislodge the clot that's forming and cause bleeding to resume. If blood spurts or continues flowing after continuous pressure, seek medical assistance.
2. Clean the wound. Rinse out the wound with clear water. Soap can irritate the wound, so try to keep it out of the actual wound. If dirt or debris remains in the wound after washing, use tweezers cleaned with alcohol to remove the particles. If debris still remains, see your doctor. Thorough cleaning reduces the risk of infection and tetanus. To clean the area around the wound, use soap and a washcloth. There's no need to use hydrogen peroxide, iodine or an iodine-containing cleanser.
3. Apply an antibiotic. After you clean the wound, apply a thin layer of an antibiotic cream or ointment such as Neosporin or Polysporin to help keep the surface moist. The products don't make the wound heal faster, but they can discourage infection and help your body's natural healing process. Certain ingredients in some ointments can cause a mild rash in some people. If a rash appears, stop using the ointment.
4. Cover the wound. Bandages can help keep the wound clean and keep harmful bacteria out. After the wound has healed enough to make infection unlikely, exposure to the air will speed wound healing.

Clean the cut with soap and hot water, then clean it with alcohol and apply antiseptic cream or ointment (there are many Bactine is aoochless, neosporine stay on batter just pick and choose). Must apply bandage and change it as needed.

Knife is never clean for it to be Truly clean you need to sterilize it, most people get by washing it with soap and hot water. Do not worry watch it and if the swelling does not go down in few day or pain is unbearable, then just run to a Dr. for batter treatment.

If it has stopped bleeding you can apply ice for the swelling, then when you put on a bandage make sure you apply an antibacterial cream to fight infection.

It's normal.
It's just agitation of the skin.
If the swelling doesn't go away in a couple of days or the swelling turns red and looks inflamed you should go and see a doctor.

i work for a catering company so i get these little cuts chopping things all the time, just put pressure on it to stop the bleeding, and clean it out well with hot water. if you were cutting up something that could spread a disease, like raw meat, then put some antiseptic on it, i usually use povidone-iodine solution, to prevent infection. swelling is normal. thats just your body pushing blood with white blood cells in it to the skin to create more heat and kill any bacteria.
