If the wound is very deep it’s possible you might need a couple of stitches to help promote healing and stop the bleeding. Depending on how much bleeding you have it might take a few days for it to stop completely if it’s not very bad. Keep the pressure on the wound along with an antibiotic topically. If it continues to be a problem see your podiatrist
