4mm is a tiny fraction of an inch. With you having no experience, I might call the vet to be on the safe side but I wouldn't think there is anything he can do that you can't do yourself. Keep it clean for a few days at least. Your vet should be able to recommend pretty much the same thing and be able to give you instructions over the phone to save you a farm call. If you are that worried about contamination, vet wrap or at least duct tape will help in wrapping it.
A good relationship with your vet is such an important thing to have so that, in the long run, they will talk to you about the problem instead of running out there each and every time you have a concern.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
