Another first aid q, sorry *trig*
« on: April 27, 2012, 03:44:55 PM »
Sorry for another boring first aid question.

 :trig:

I have 3 cuts which are about 1cm long and a few mm deep - you can see the yellow fat. They are now 24hours old. They've stopped bleeding but the sides are still apart (a couple of mm) and they look wet inside. I've done worse but something worries me about these ones. Do I need to get them checked, and is it too late anyway? Sorry... no-one else I can ask!

i'd get them checked out.
i think the fact you're in doubt (i.e. asking) means that you should for sure xx xx

Thanks. It's tricky now, my mum's home and I've had a glass of wine so can't drive. There's nothing they can do after 24 hours is there? I'll keep an eye on them. They've not shut anymore :(
