Baby cut his finger

My 9 month old just squashed his finger and when he pulled his finger a flap of his skin completely lifted up as well. I got the bleeding to stop and put a bandaid but I'm worried about infection especially since he keeps putting his finger in his mouth. Is there anything I can do to prevent infection?

For right now, I'd put some Neosporin and a bandaid on it. Keep an eye on it. If it begins to set up an infection it will turn an angry red color. If that happens I'd take him to the doctor. If he's not making a fuss about it, I'd just keep an eye on it. If he is, it would probably be worth it to make that trip, Monday.
