I understand your concern.
Well as you describe, you should apply cool compresses with an ice cube wrapped in a cotton cloth/ gauze and put firm pressure on the affected site for 10 minutes.
If blood soaks through, add another cloth or bandage and continue putting pressure on the cut for an additional 10 minutes.
Antiseptic betadine solution can be applied.When bleeding has stopped, tape a clean bandage over the affected site.
Take OTC Motrin.
Let me know if you have any further queries so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
