Accidentally cut my labia minora shaving. Managed to stop bleeding but now in alot of internal pain & it won't heal. Weeping & white for 3 days?

To prevent trauma: If three days, body makes a protective cover for a small wound. You may keep a band-aid on to avoid trauma to the wound. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

I cut my baby's finger with the nail clippers. It bleed for a while & i think it has stopped. I put a bandaid on it. How to i know it's stopped bleed?
Bleeding finger: As with any abrasion or minor scrape, most of this bleeding stops when bandaged as you have done. That means that basically if there's not blood running from the wound it's probably okay, but if there is flesh hanging someplace on the wound you should have it checked definitely in an emergency room! ...Read more

Cut my finger half an inch deep. much blood, cant afford stitches. sprayed liquid bandaid on it, cant wash because excrutiating. will it heal and how long???
Finger cut: A hand cut 1/2 deep is pretty substantial, especially if it was on the fingers. You could have damaged a nerve, vessels, or tendons. Though, you state you can't afford an ER visit, I would suggest you still go. Especially if you have any numbness of the fingers or lack full range of motion of all your digits and joints. A "paper cut" or superficial cut can be glued, but can lead to infection. ...Read more
