While baking, my fiance wounded her hand (deep cut) by accidentally cutting herself while using a scissors. Just wondering what would be the right steps to care for the wound?

Thank you for your questions.

For your information, some acute or open wounds may not require medical treatment where they can treated at home. However, severe open wounds involving significant bleeding will require immediate medical attention.

Deep wound care should involve the following steps:

  • stop the bleeding -use clean cloth or bandage, gently apply pressure to the wound
  • clean the wound
  • Treat the wound with antibiotics ointment- to prevent infections
  • Close and dress the wound
  • Routinely change the dressing

These answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to the nearest medical doctor for immediate treatment if the wound never gets better.
