Cut part of finger off (chunk of skin) in kitchen. It seemed to stop bleeding but when changing gauze it starts up again. Normal ? It's a lot of blood

In brief: Finger wound

A slice of skin off the finger tip can lead to bleeding that persists for quite a time, and may start back up again when you change the dressing.
Taking asprin or Ibuprofen (motrin, advil) can make bleeding worse. If the piece of skin cut off is available at the time of the injury, cleaning it with water and reapplying it to the wound can make the best dressing (and it may even grow back).
