How to stop bleeding fingertip cut off home remedies
- Apply direct pressure on it with a clean cloth or tissue or cotton. If the bleeding is too much that the cloth or cotton is getting wet in blood then without removing the existing cotton apply more and put pressure on it.
- If the bleeding is from leg then make sure to bring your limb above the level of your heart. It will help lowering the blood pressure and will affect the blood flow.
- Wash your hands clean before and after doing first aid.
- Do not apply band-aid unless the bleeding is severe and not stopped with direct pressure.

- The area around the wound feels numb
