I cut my thumb yesterday with one of hubby's pocket knives.
Don't ask. It was a stupid human trick.
Anyhow, I put pressure on it with a tissue. It stopped bleeding after a while. Then I removed the tissue to use a band aid & it started bleeding again.
So I put pressure on it with a napkin. Again, it stopped bleeding after a while. I removed that to use a band aid & it started bleeding again.
I put the band aid on anyhow (F it!) & it stopped bleeding. But when I showered the band aid got wet so I had to remove it to put on another, & the cut started bleeding again.
This morning the band aid wasn't sticking right & I had to replace it. It looks like it was bleeding at some point again.
However, I'm also on Coumadin, an anti-clotting agent. So that may be why it continues to bleed.
Or it just may be bleeding off & on because it's deep. But I'm not going to get out a ruler to shove in the depth of the cut to figure out how deep it is either!
I'm just going to throw out a wild guess of 1/8 ".
I don't want to go to the clinic because I don't think they even do minor "surgeries" or casts. They'd probably send me to an ER & I don't want to sit for most of the day in a room next door to someone screaming, crying, moaning or hurling.
