For some reason I felt like I had to go to the bathroom before but couldn't so I stuck a finger up there. My nails are on the long side and I didn't really think it through. When I took my finger out I noticed a little bit of blood on my finger. I think I may have scratched myself, there was not a lot of blood but it was still noticeable. I'm scared that I have a scratch or cut in there now and that it will get infected. I feel just a slight discomfort but no extreme pain or anything. Should I continue to worry and consult someone about this, or let it heal on its own?
