Re: Can getting cut with some corroded copper be a problem?
Yes, it can be a problem, as copper is a metal that can corrode and you may get Tetanus from the bacteria. Best is to wash the wound out and tell your parents. Tell them you want to go to the doc and get checked out - you don't want to take a risk with Tetanus. Once you get it, it's a long recovery (approx 4 months)
If you're feeling weird, and your muscles are locking up with no particular reason within the next 20 days, tell your mom or dad to get you to the doc immediately, as this is Generalized Tetanus.
Whatever the case or whatever it may be, before it gets infected or something weird happens, go see a doc.

Reason: more info - go to the doc anyway
