DS has cut his head, still bleeding....what should I do?
DD1 did a similar thing on a door frame when she was 2. We used a steri-strip to hold the edges closed, and it did stop bleeding. I would say that you probably do need to get it checked out. Why don't you try calling NHS direct?
dont beat urself up! if u ring nhs direct they will tell u to go to a&e anyway as they err on the side of caution. thinking logically, he has been happy the rest of the day and u said there was no signs of concusion, it keeps trickling blood (which always looks worse than it is)so sit him on the sofa have a cuddle and apply pressure to the wound. thats what will happen at A&E cos its a bit late for stitching etc.
Just tried putting a steri-strip thingy on it but it's just sticking to his hair.
It's not really bleeding as such now, just sort of weeping. There's an area next to the cut that's just skimmed off the top layers of skin, brave little man let me have a good look and the cut isn't pulling apart at all so I think the graze around it might be causing the bleeding/weeping.
