I've cut my hand. It's weeping/bleeding and with the positioning of it it keeps splitting.

Aibu just to stitch it?.

No hmm go to the doctor/a&e etc you odd bod.

You'll end up there, for anti-biotics, if you do, so you might as well go to a Walk-in, to get it seen to.

You're asking for septicaemia shock

Get off with you to A+E!!!

If you are a HCP qualified in these matters-do it. If not best to leave it to the professionals.

Superglue. It's what it was designed for.

Why on earth would you do that yourself hmmconfused

How about using a stapler if the sewing or glue suggestion doesn't work?

Clean it with hot salt water and stick it closed with steri strips or thin bits of surgical tape.

Superglue was originally designed to close wounds but I wouldn't fancy doing it myself (although I have had a wound glued in a&e and it didn't hurt at all.

Used superglue.

I am a HCP. But I had to use my non dominant hand to do it, so it's not too pretty.

A&E staff here are run off their feet. Im not going to waste their time over a silly cut.

All good then.

KayTee87 Wed 19-Apr-17 21:30:58

And you didn't think to mention the fact that you're a HCP in your first post? Kind of important information opwink

My dad had a massive cut and he just held it together with loads of plasters and gaffer tape until it sealed healed over. When he was having a stroke he tried to just have a cup of tea and walk it off but ended up in hospital for a month. Silly old sod.

Yeah., you can't walk off a stroke. I hope his stroke wasn't severe.
