Liquid bandage: If you buy some liquid bandage the pain would stop immediately. Make sure to wash your hands and dry them well before applying. With out this, try a bandaid and that may help. Usually without treatment the pain will last for a couple days.

Apply pressure: If you hold continuous pressure for 5 minutes it will stop bleeding. Set a timer and don't peek. Make sure you have washed it well first.
