I cut my palm yesterday on a jagged piece of plastic. It wasn't a bad cut, so I ignored it. Today the area is a bit tender and red, and goes to show that I shouldn't have been stubborn and should have disinfected it right then when I cut it.
Since writing the above several hours ago, I put the oil from an orange peel on the cut as well as frankincense essential oil. It's less red and tender around the scrape now, though the cut itself is still tender.
