Default cut hand... step 2 cs in a few days!

Hey all,

I cut the top of my finger but have the step 2 CS exam in a few days. The cut is very obvious and swollen. Now, I know that they (usmle) say that you need to wear gloves if you have cuts on your hand... but I have very small hands and apparently they only have medium and large gloves in the exam center? Is that true? Help! What should I do? Is it okay to wear a bandage over my cut and just wash my hands (like I'd normally do)? Or am I required to wear gloves....
