Help! i cut the tip of my finger cooking!! how do i stop the bleeding!?

I looked at the First aid kit in my house for instructions ... here's what it says for bleeding wounds...

-Have victim lay down to slow heart rate.
- Elevate .. use gravity to control bleeding, donot remove broken limbs.
- Direct pressure: apply direct pressure with sterile dressing or gloved hand
- Donot remove embeded objects, apply padding around the object, and call 911 or go to hospital..!!!

Get a napkin or towel and wrap it on it..hold it tightly but don't cut off circulation.
If it's VERY deep go to the doctor, you might need stiches.

For a clean cut with a knife, forget wadding paper towels or anything on it. Once it has bled a bit (clean it out, and get plenty of platelets to the site), use your other hand to gently hold the cut closed. I've never had a cut that would still ooze once I held it right. Hold it for 20 minutes, if at all possible. Your blood has all kinds of cool stuff in it to clot the blood and start healing.

The absolute best thing once you've let it sit and clot up is to cover the cut with some BandAid glue. Great stuff! If you don't have any, just make sure to cover the cut with a bandage so the edges of the cut remain held together.

The final thing is to keep it dry for a few days. I've showered and washed my hair with a baggie over one finger. When you get the skin wet, the edges of the cut swell and lift.

I've found things heal quickly when treated this way. The worst thing with a cut is having it get pulled open again.

direct pressure but not too much if the finger starts turning purple dont use as much pressure

Put direct prussre on the cut with a clean gauze bandage and when the bleeding stops then put a clean gauze bandage on it.

relax--pull your self together--grab a towel or rag for now closet to you ..apply alot of pressure. keep the hand elevated ..grab ice and do not distrb the cloth or rag you put on the site just lay the ice over the injured area...give it a few minutes say 10, take a peek if it is not flowing you will be fine keep it wraped in clean towel now and even bandages--if you are flowing in blood after 10 min get to the emergency room they will have to give you sutures(stitches)..ok good luck..

Becareful with the pressure if you cut off all circulation you will lose the finger.

hi.I know that a pressure bandage will stop the bleeding,noy bandaids but gauze bandage and try to leave it alone for a day.Should do the trick.

firm direct pressure now

Get a rag or towel and apply direct pressure to the site, where you cut your finger off.
Then after applying pressure, hold your finger above your head. This will slow the blood flow to the extremity.
If it is very deep, you may need to go to the hospital and get stiches.
If you have not had a tetnaus shot in the previous 10 years go and get a booster for that.

Keep presure on it

Must have been a pain to type the question out =P
(yes i know, I'm hilarious)

Mind you i did do this when i was 11... finger got slammed in the hinge side of a door and it was hanging off by a thread of skin. Anyway, I was made to hold my finger in the air to make the blood go into the opposite direction and slow it down and got pressure applied to it. Please go to the hospital to avoid infection then your problems could get worse than just losing the tip.
