Stupidly cut hand and carved out a strip of skin an inch long/ 5mm wide. I thought it would be best to stick it back into position and cover with pressure bandage. It was deep though and bled like a bugger (stopped now though). The bit of skin I carved out is white thoughand it doesn't hurt which I think is a bad thing?. I am awaiting a callback from nhs nurse but it'll be hours and the local ooh will be closed, the a&e will be an hours drive and obviously I'm home alone with young dc. Can add pic once I get dc offto bed if it'd help?
