    It's part of the inflammatory phase of healing, my dude. You're laying the ground for collagen deposition to heal over it.

    100% not - the signs to look out for an infected cut are spreading redness (it's gonna be a bit red around it normally - again, that's just part of the inflammatory response and is super normal - but excessive redness is an issue); if it starts oozing pus; gets super sensitive and swollen; or fever.

    If you just wash it like normal, it shouldn't get infected ^^

    Part of the healing process. Also can be a bit of irritation/ drying out from having a plaster stuck on the area. It looks as healthy as a cut can be from here. Just keep it clean and maybe use a little cream on the further away bits (not on the actual cut unless it's something like an antiseptic cream.
