First apply pressure to it, then elevate it above your heart. Relax, don't panic, slow your breathing down. Check it every few minutes to get an idea of how much blood is coming out.. Go to your sink & try to clean it up a bit around the area, any kind of antiseptic will work, & it'll sting. Return to constant pressure & elevation. If it appears to be slowing continue with the pressure & elevation. Hit it with more antiseptic, dry the area around the cut & apply a dressing & bandage. If after an hour or so the blood is still flowing, leave that bandage & dressing on & put a new 1 on top of the other, time for some stitches. You can do it yourself or go to the hospital

Pressure to stop the bleeding... then put a dab of Neosporin on it and cover it with a band-aid.

First apply pressure to the area: cover with a clean paper towel and squeeze the cut area firmly for at least 5 minutes. If this doesn't stop the bleeding, you need to go to an ER, ASAP. If it does stop the bleeding, you can apply neosporin and a bandaid--and change the bandage twice a day, very carefully (it's easy to reopen a deep cut). If you feel unsure about whether the bandage is enough, then the ER is in order.

Stop the bleeding with direct pressure. Wash the cut. Treat yourself to a band-aid. Or a few band-aids. Depends on how big tge cut is.

First of all you should stop bleeding and put some adhesive tape to stop it. Contact your doctor immediately if it has deep cut you may need stitching also and inj for TT. etc.

wash it then put baking powder on it. the baking powder will help the blood clot and start to form a scab....then just put a band aid on it
