Is a paper cut on the white of your eye serious? It is bleeding

Is a paper cut on the white of your eye serious? It is bleeding

Usually not serious: The whites of your eyes is a thin skin covering the eyeball and can heal quickly on its own. Small blood vessels in the conjunctiva can leak if it is cut, but the body can absorb it. If you have pain or blurred vision see your eye doctor.

It: It sounds like a corneal abrasion. It is a very painful condition but fortunately resolves quickly. Corneal abrasion expose your cornea to infection so you should be treated with an antibiotic as a prophylaxis. You should be seen by an ophthalmologist to make sure that there is no ruptured globe and to make sure that all foreign material is removed.

Hurt lens in eye taking out contacts. Optometrist says it's like paper cut in middle of pupil. Got drops, not so sore today. Do I need opthamologist?

Hurt lens in eye taking out contacts. Optometrist says it's like paper cut in middle of pupil. Got drops, not so sore today. Do I need opthamologist?

Needs more info: If the optometrist has done an examination with fluorescein and your vision is fine and they have given you antibiotic eye drops then likely on the right treatment but will need review. However if there's any doubt about this/what's been done - as you say needs an urgent doctor assessment -either GP, emergency doctor or ophthalmologist so safer to get checked or contact optometrist again.

Pimple with pus head on penis shaft after shaving. I popped it and 2 days later I had 5 small paper cut looking blisters spread around my penis. No itch, burn or pain. Help?

Non-problem: Keep it washed. If the area is not healed up by 2 weeks, a physician's office visit is in order. Think about getting an electric shaver, and washing before and after you shave yourself there.

Paper cut: Apply continuous pressure for several minutes and the bleeding will stop. Make sure the area stays clean so as to avoid infection. If the bleeding doesn't stop, I recommend consulting with your doctor.

Hello, I have a cut in between my pinky toe, its bigger than a paper cut and probably a little more than a quarter inch deep. What could it be?

Hello, I have a cut in between my pinky toe, its bigger than a paper cut and probably a little more than a quarter inch deep. What could it be?

Fissure: If you do not have a history of trauma where you could have cut your toe, then you probably have a fissure. Athletes foot and dry skin can cause fissures between and under the toes. Your podiatrist can prescribe medication that will treat this problem.

Only during intercourse especially doing it in one position my perineum get paper cut like tear. Can this be herpes?

See an OB/GYN: Without an exam would only be guessing and that is not what you need. If this is happening in only one sexual position there may be an anatomical problem. Herpes is not likely to appear in this manner. Go get examined.

My son has cuts under both his pinky toes. I have no idea where they came from they are more than a paper cut. What could this be from?

Cracked skin: Could be a fungus, too much moisture, or both. If he sweats excessively, foot powder could be used. I would also recommend starting antifungal cream every night before going to bed and in the mornings.

Can a small cut on the finger, even a paper cut, that doesn't even bleed cause the finger to have a knot or to be a little bit swollen?

Can a small cut on the finger, even a paper cut, that doesn't even bleed cause the finger to have a knot or to be a little bit swollen?

Yes: The normal healing process involves an inflammatory phase which most often manifests as redness and slight swelling in the first few days. For skin cuts, burns, abrasions, etc., if you are keeping the injured area clean, the redness and swelling should reduce significantly or resolve within a few days. If it does not reduce or is obviously worsened, there may be infection requiring medical help.
