Deep Cut On Finger Won T Stop Bleeding
Last night cut myself shaving. Small cut but not deep and it won't stop bleeding. The razor was a tiny (not even enough) rusty. Should I get help??
Yes.: At 24 you are probably up to date on your tetanus, but be sure. Re: the bleeding, you may have hit a tiny vessel. The 1st step to stop the bleeding would be to apply pressure. You can place some gauze pads and wrap them with an ace wrap. Leave this in place for 20 minutes and then check (remove the ace wrap and the outer gauze, leave last piece of gauze in place.) If still bleeding see MD. ...Read more
Deep smallish cut on knuckle. Like deeeep paper cut. Stopped bleeding @1hr, alcoholed, bandaged but very bruised/tender today. Basic first aid enough?
Watch for signs: Was it a clean cut? Is tetanus up to date? Monitor for signs of infection. Keep clean with mild soap such as Cetaphil plain soap followed by light occlusive dressing such as petrolatum or Aquaphor or neosporin if not allergic. It should heal in 3-5 days if superficial. If getting worse, see MD ...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

3 days ago, I accidentally cut part of my fingernail, exposing skin. Bit red, no bleeding or pain. do I need to keep covered until nail grows back?
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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

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

Will eventually heal: But i wouldn't advise it. Cuts on the hand are prone to reopening because of the movement of the hand. Also there are somany underlying structures that are important in the hand that can be injured and should be repaired if the cut is deep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Cut my finger on a sharp place on one of my teeth.. I don't think it's big enough to need stitches but it's deep enough that it doesn't want to close?
Excessive bleeding?: Is the bleeding a new symptom? How deep was the cut? In the wrist area the are lots of superficial veins and a few important arteries that could bleed impressively when cut. If you have not had a history of easy or frequent bruising or bleeding, or a family history of a bleeding disorder, then all the blood you saw is likely from a cut blood vessel. Check with your doctor to make sure all is well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
