Most minor wounds can be easily treated at home, though you may need to seek urgent care if the wound is large or if you can’t control the bleeding. Whenever you have a wound, cleaning it properly is the first stage of healing.
Watch this video to learn how to properly clean a wound. Put pressure on it for about 10 minutes to stop the bleeding, and then remove any dirt or debris you see, wash it with soap and water, and cover it with a bandage. Visit an urgent care center if you can’t clean the wound thoroughly or if the bleeding is excessive.
