The Daily Halacha Moment - Breaking Shabbat For Injuries Caused by a Metal Object
״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)
“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)
May one break Shabbat to treat an injury caused by a metal object?
One who is wounded through a metal object, such as a knife, may be treated on Shabbat and may even put cream on the wound in order to avoid infection. Similarly, it is permitted to violate Shabbat for any wound that a doctor deems can be a life-threatening wound, such as if it is possible that the wound can cause an infection.

See also Yalkut Yosef, Shabbat, vol. 4, p. 223 who states that not every small cut from a knife or metal permits one to violate Shabbat in order to treat it. One may only violate Shabbat in order to treat a cut that can be deemed at least a doubtful danger. See also Ashrei HaIsh, vol. 2, 36:33.
