How to stop bleeding on a Small cut while on coumadin/warfarin.?
Hello , My husband is currently on Coumadin/warfarin and this morning he got a little cut on his finger which removed a small piece of skin. It has been bleeding off and on all day. We have been changing bandaids about every 5- 8 min or so. While burping the baby it started up again. Any suggestions on how to stop bleeding on such a small cut. It is to small to go to the ER or Dr about. Thanks for all your help.

When's the last time he had his Prothrombin time checked? If it's been longer than 3 weeks it's time for a recheck to determine if his Coumadin level is correct. Try applying direct pressure for 10 minutes and if that doesn't stop it go to First/Urgent Care or similar or ER as last resort.

Try applying pressure on the wound with a damp gauze for around 30 minutes or you can use a tea bag since it has tannic acid which can help stop bleeding. Steep the tea bag in water then squeeze to remove excess water, then apply on the wound with light pressure for 30 mins.

Keep more pressure on the cut - use a gauze pad and tape on it - not just a band-aid. And then once it stops bleeding - let it alone for a while so it will clot off -
If he has a "stiptic " pencil (for stopping bleeding while shaving) - you could try that as well -
