Bleeding

Treatment

  • Apply direct pressure on the cut or wound with a clean cloth, tissue, or piece of gauze until bleeding stops.
  • If blood soaks through the material, don’t remove it. Put more cloth or gauze on top of it and continue to apply pressure.
  • If the wound is on the arm or leg, raise limb above the heart to help slow bleeding.
  • Wash your hands again after giving first aid and before cleaning and dressing the wound.
  • Gently clean with soap and warm water. Try to rinse soap out of wound to prevent irritation.
  • Apply antibiotic cream to reduce risk of infection and cover with a sterile bandage.
  • Change the bandage daily to keep the wound clean and dry.

Cautions

  • Call a Doctor if the person has a puncture wound or deep cut.
  • Call a Doctor if the wound shows signs of infection, such as inflammation, tenderness, or a thick discharge, or if the person runs a temperature over 100º F.
