I think it all depends on the person and how susceptible you are to certain infections.

I've never had an issue and I've stuck my hand in the tank numerous times with cuts or scrapes on it. Then again I've read stories of others who have had major infections.

I'm not saying to not be careful. I'm not going to rub zoos in my open cut. Then again I'm not going to worry about it all the time. I find gloves are a hassle and make it harder to rearrange rocks, etc.
