Hmm. How long should a cut acquired slicing bread heal when pressure is applied with a clean tea towel before going to Casualty is a good idea?

erm, not sure. i guess if I was on my own and it was still bleeding after 20 minutes of constant pressure I'd go to A&E. But thats a bit of a random number...

I think it's just about stopped now. After over an hour. I need to find a big plaster now.

Ten minutes of constant pressure should stop just about any bleeding, but if it's something that flexes perhaps you might be re-opening it. How would you get to casualty?

Bus - the 41 goes from here straight to the hospital. I think I've sorted it now though - I'm just keeping it still so it sets.

My rule of deep-cut-on-the-thumb is to wait to see if any drops touch the floor after soaking through a cloth.

Just saw this now....keeping it elevated helps stop bleeding, to keep in mind for next time.
