 A Wild RES turtle bit me! Please help..

I fished out a RES today from a canal and thought it looked cute so I decided to keep it. I was gentle when i fished it out, by the way. But it bit me when i was holding it. Should i worry about diseases, other than salmonella?

Just wash the wound but if your really worried and it broke skin to make you bleed see a doctor.
