Assessing The Damage Done: Analyzing The Severity Of Your Mosquito Bite Errrr I mean Cuts!!!

First things first – assess the severity of your wound so that you can determine if self-treatment at home is sufficient or if you need outside help.

Types of cuts

There are three types of cuts: superficial, partial thickness, and full-thickness:

Superficial cuts

These cuts do not generally require medical care except cleaning off dirt or debris often found on their surface due mostly because they barely punctured past beyond upper layers of skin compared ot partial thickness which involves deeper levels exposed:
Clean using mild soapy water/diluted hydrogen peroxide
Dry Aggressively
A drop antibiotic ointment/soothing lotion

Partial Thickness

Partial-thickness cuts involve deeper skin layers and usually bleed more than superficial ones. This may be followed by a burning sensation or pain :
Gently clean using mild soapy water/diluted hydrogen peroxide
Apply cold press to reduce bleeding if intense
For stronger pressure apply resistance such as bandage/stitched sterile gauze


The worst-case scenario is deep cuts depth into adipose tissue, tendons, blood vessels and other delicate parts of the body. Now you just started to pray for magical creature intervention in stopping it:
call emergency services(team delay maintenance)
Apply direct pressure(After cleaning gently with normal saline) over wound until medical help arrives

Tried & Tested Trick For Immediate Stop To Bleeding.

A Peele Peel-Off (similar to Witches Spell)

Step 1: Clean The Cut With Water And Soap/Disinfectant

Please resist your temptation of screaming/fainting/or running off naked thinking this will not happen after all I’m doing an article/I HAVE ONE VIRTUAL JOB TOO!.

With Soap:

Run tap water over the injury site or use soft cotton dipped in boiled water.
Clean the disinfected blade-induced gaping hole around five minutes afterward sewing equipment was used.
Soap application shouldn’t be done ferociously rather softly but thoroughly(wear hand gloves).

With Dettol:

If the shaving tool fell down before slicing through flesh maybe left there while attempted product retrieval game.
In that case, disinfect whatever touched its drooling blades!!
Grade A antiseptic fluid applied soaked towel/cotton is best available option.

Step 2: Use A Cold Compress To Slow Down The Blood Flow

Generally made by applying an ice pack wrapped in some fabric. Apply it gently to the wound for a couple of minutes intervals say and after that reapply/re-white as per requirement.

Its use helps blood vessels constrict & pores reduce thus making useful pad relevant.

Step 3: Use A Pen Capsule Spring/Adhesive Tape

If bleeding isn’t heav or more than two towels required then this can help:
Take a ruler’s length worth tape or roll(s).
Fold/Roll the tape-preferred way
Make sure scissors are nowhere near eyes,boulders,feet/tail ears
Place adhesive side over cut, slightly elastic force applied but not exceeding the pressure extremely.

If none available spring taken from pen/marker is also used(sterilized early) rollover matching part gradually released to achieve same results as written above.

In case you’re still milking your friendship with ignorance here’s what else could be done so experts can take their turn:

Butterfly Stitches/Medical Staples

Butterfly closures/Stitches where stitches ain’t perfect for handling deep gashes.

Medical staples were pinching metal clips attached using professional technique ensuring minimal risk implemented on wounded area.

Super Glue/Surgical Glues

They sound off-beat non-relevant like crazy professor recipes however they hold great value those dealing with lacerations during emergencies :

Surgical glue viscous liquid substance that solidified upon contact with wound edges seals up open surface tension incisions simple efficient solution comparable traditional sutures said faster less painful.(sterilization mandatory)

Superglue was introduced into medical field when research continued work finding cost-effective replacement staples/sutures.
Applicator nozzle based DERMABOND offered to reduce wound complications along allergies infection irritation avoided applying before stuffs entering touch.

Bonus Section: First Aid Kit

You never know when an accident will happen, so it’s best always to be prepared. A well-stocked first aid kit can make all the difference:

Sterile (non-stick) dressing pads

Dressing tape/Escharotic agents
 Did you gnaw at your siblings while trying “it wasn't me” tactic burning sensation follow?

Calatomine lotion/application necessary in insinuations of existing burns
Rice water applied on open cuts surrounding area diffuses required cooling balance
