If you have a styptic pencil, dampen it and apply it to where it is bleeding. Once the bleeding stops, apply Neosporin and a bandage and keep it clean and dry. If you don't have a styptic pencil and direct pressure isn't stopping the bleeding, put a dab of regular all-purpose flour in place and hold it there with a bandage. The flour will aid in clotting the blood. If none of these works, your blood may be too thin for some reason (excessive NSAID or aspirin use if you're not on a blood thinner) and you will need to seek medical attention.

This is a interesting question, I didn't heard something like that before. As you know, when you were a baby, there was a cordon at there. It was your everything, your food was coming from there, your blood was going&coming from there. I think it can be important. So if it won't stop, I suggest you to go to doctor. But before that, think about your tetanus shot.(Because of glass table, yes glass can make this disease too). If you hadn't done that over 5 years go now and tell to a nurse to do a shot. It can be dangerous
