Try: Depending on how big or deep the cut is this could work. Gently wash off the wound with cold water. Dry it out and administer some pressure . If bleeding stops then great, put a band aid on it. If it bleeds through the band aid go to the urgent care or emergency room for assessment possible stitches. Good luck
