Brief Answer:
Doesn't seem any important cut.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and I went through the photos you provided and here is my advice.

I see a small scratch on the picture. It doesn't seem important just a small cut.
Use alcohol to disinfect it from time to time till it gets healed.
Do you remember any details on where you did it?
What do you mean by saying he had some reservation on computer or something else?

Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
It is nothing to worry about.

Hello dear and thank you for asking again.
I see the pictures of the thumb you upload and I don't believe that it can be dangerous.
Using the sanitizer and gloves is positive factor on diminishing the risk of contracting any disease.

Brief Answer:
Just wash hands and disinfect it with alcohol.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and thank you for asking again.
I still don't think this can be a problem because the thumb has a very small cut and it doesn't look infected.

Even though you may have touched dirty towels the contact is very minimal.
Just wash the hand with soap and water,use alcohol to disinfect it.

I don't think you may need to do any tests.

Brief Answer:
PEP may be needed.

Detailed Answer:
If you were pricked by a needle used for injection then there is an increased risk of getting infected by HIV and Hepatitis B and C.
In this case you should go to hospital and PEP (post exposure prophylaxis) is needed to prevent you from getting infected.
This treatment should be started within 1-2 days.
So if this is true go to hospital.
