So earlier I heard my little naked screeching and I rushed to the cage and he had one of his fingers stuck in one of the holes of his little house he managed to get free and jumped out the cage. In the process my finger ended up bleeding.
So after he calmed down he came out from under the sofa and I've had a look and it looks like he's scraped in between his fingers. Is there anything I should do?
He seems ok in himself I've given him some peas and pasta and removed the house. I have some rat anti biotics not sure if maybe I should give him some to ward off infection?

It is wise to reserve antibiotics for when they definitely need them, so no, don't give him any. He should heal up fine without, but in the unlikely event of it getting red and badly swollen, then that's a different matter.
