I cut my finger on a can, it bled really bad but isnt anymore and i was wondering if you think its big enough to go in and get stitches?
Hello, If it is not bleeding now, then better leave it provided the cut is small. If the cut is more or still it is bleed, then you need stitches. Further if the bleeding is heavy, you need further assessment like bleeding time, clotting time and prothrombin time to rule out any bleeding disorders. Please let me know if you have any further queries.
