(Disclaimer: This is NOT to take place of seeking medical help from your doc, emergency room or whomever you use for your medical professional.)

* If needed take Tylenol (acetaminophen) to help with discomfort.

* Keep the cut clean and dry.

* Wash it thoroughly with bacterial soap. -This is the most important step to take and should be done 1 or 2 times a day. Make sure you rinse well and dry completely.

* Putting an antibiotic ointment will help it heal. Just make sure you use a q-tip instead of your fingers.

*Cover with a non stick dressing if in an area that may get dirty or irritated.

* If using a dressing apply directly over the cut and wrap losely. (gauze or ace bandage).

* to help reduce the chance of it getting infected do not touch your cut with your hands or other objects. Handle the cut as little as you can.

* Cuts to the arms or legs should be elevated for the first 24-48 hours.

*Signs of Infection*:
redness; swelling; pain; pus; red streaks, if you see any of these signs seek medical attention promptly. Share
