Did it bleed? If it did there is no reason to worry about tetanus. to your lil one.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I have read many times that tetanus is not a risk especially if you do proper wound care, but what is proper wound care? How would you clean out or what would you do for deeper wounds, that are deeper than like an ordinary abrasion? Would you still pour peroxide on it, like even if fleshy stuff was exposed? Then would you keep cleaning it out a couple of times a day? Do you just use the peroxide at first?
Also, how often and what would you put on it daily? Things like tea tree oil, or the honey, or I also was told by someone today that yarrow is very good for wounds. The wound I am talking about here, for example, is not one that closed up right away, it is still open after a couple of days, and needing to be tended to. When I clean it off, it still has a small amount of blood or other fluid surface again, so I know it is not closed up yet.
I don't know whether to cover or leave it open. Most of the time, I leave stuff open to the air, but this being deeper made me think I should cover it some.
Thanks for your help folks.
