Cuts and Bruises

How to treat Cuts

If its a small cut take a baby wipe and wipe it clean so it doesn't get infected then place a band-aid over it and you are good to go. If its a big cut wipe it with a wipe then wrap gauze around it. You may have to go to the hospital if the cut is bleeding an excess amount.

Bruises

Bruises Can be very painful so here's how you treat a bruise. Take a look at the Bruise usually its small and you can just leave it alone. If its over a foot long then you may want to have a doctor check it out. Now if the victim is in extreme pain the bone may have broken (see broken bones).

Nose Bleeds

Nose Bleed results in a loss of a pretty good amount of blood usually its not life threatening. To treat a nose bleed

Pinch your nose with your thumb and forefinger for fifteen minutes and tip your head forward NOT backwards. Apply a soft compress the nose until it has stopped bleeding. If the bleeding persists for thirty minutes call your doctor and ask if you need to come in to get it treated.
