Finger Won't Stop Bleeding?

Answer

If you have a wound that is bleeding, controlling the blood flow is very important, since uncontrolled bleeding may lead to shock, and potentially become life-threatening. Minor cuts usually stop bleeding on their own. If you have a deep wound that does not stop bleeding, apply pressure continuously for up to 30 minutes, and elevate the wound. You should avoid removing the pressure to check on the wound until after 30 minutes has passed, since that might dislodge the blood clot that should be developing to seal the wound. If bleeding continues after pressure is applied, or if the wound is deep enough that blood is spurting, you should immediately seek medical attention, such as calling an ambulance. After the bleeding has stopped, rinse out the wound with clear water, but avoid using soap which can irritate the wound. If possible, apply an antibiotic ointment to prevent infection.
