This answer was rated:

I have a solar keratosis on my waistline which got rubbed and is now bleeding. This happened a couple of days ago and still looks raw. I’m worried about infection
JA: Have you used any medication for the bleeding?
Customer: No. Just covered it up
JA: Got it. Have you seen a doctor about the bleeding?
Customer: Haven’t been able to get an appointment
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I have lots of lesions and am on Rivaroxaban

Hope this worked

I see it.  It’s red but there’s doesn’t look like any signs of infection.  I don’t see pus.  I would clean the lesion with hydrogen peroxide twice a day.  Then apply an over the counter antibiotic cream.   Then cove with gauze or a bandaid.

Ok?  Do you have any questions?
