APPLY CLEAN DRESSING,GAUZE, OR CLEAN CLOTH TO AREA. HOLD PRESSURE FIRMLY FOR 10 MINUTES CONSTANTLY. DO NOT RELEASE TO SEE IF BLEEDING HAS STOPPED UNTIL 10 MINUTES.THIS WILL WORK IF DONE PROPERLY!
For clean or cleaned wounds (wash with water, soap + water, hydrogen peroxide, etc.) then apply a liberal pinch of goldenseal root powder and pat gently to cover wound completely...the dry, antisceptic powder will absorb blood and readily form a seal/kind of a scab. Have used this on many wounds, some even moderately severe with great success - if bumped or rubbed so bleeding resumes, add more powder. It works very well, sealing the wound from contamination, helping to hold/pull it back together, while still alowing it to breathe.
Other herbs work too, cinnamon powder, tumeric, cayenne (may burn a bit though), pretty much any sterile, dry, powdered, healthful herb would likely work...Goldenseal is perhaps best, though a bit pricey, it can be purchased somewhat more economically from online sources such as San Francisco Herbs or Mountain Rose Herbs.
I buy it by the pound, (over $100 - but if kept in sealed glass jar, in cool dark place, it lasts for years)
Eastern American tribal people knew of this method of wound treatment, along with many others...such as spider webs (already mentioned), finely ground clean moss, the mold off of acorn meal, (with penicillin like properties),along with several saps, particularly pine, cedar, juniper, and other conifers such as fir and hemlock (the tree, not the poisonous plant...Pine and juniper sap have worked especially well on those cuts which are sustained on the hands or fingers, where near constant flexing makes most other 'patches' fall away far too soon. A dry powder of herb, ash, clay, flour, cornstarch, or a small piece of cloth or paper, etc. can be spread over the 'sap patch' to prevent it from sticking to everything else it contacts.
While away from any stores or supplies, (at least for relatively small cuts, scrapes, or scratches), careful chewing (on front teeth) of select types of vegetation into a sticky paste does also make for a handy and effective patch. Have used newly budded Maple leaves or seed pods, mint, dandelion, plantain...pretty much any clean tender vegetation that is non-poisonous should work...try not to mix in alot of saliva in case 'mouth germs' are prevalent.
Additionally, after wound has begun healing well, adding fresh aloe and/or nourishing oil, like Vit. E help to ease the eventual removal of scabs and further reduce any scaring.
Chapstick, or vasaline. If you put that on a small cut it will immediately stop bleeding and will heal as though there is a bandaid on it. And by the time it rubs off the cut will have stopped bleeding.
Dab CORNSTARCH on small nicks, such as from shaving. It can also be used if you cut your dogs toenail too short. Stops bleeding immediately. I don't think I would recommend it for anything larger than a small nick or scratch.
White vinegar stops most bleeding painlesly on contact, but see a doctor to determine if stitches are required.
If you put spider webs (without spiders on them) on your skin as it bleeds it will slow it down and stop.
Severe bleeding. that does not require stitches. Find some spider webs. Place a wad of the spiders web on the bleeding area. It will stop it faster than a bandage. When the bleeding stops. Remove the spider web and clean with perxiode.
I have tried this and it does work.
For Bleeding(as in a wound,) apply a little sugar and let it melt over the wound. This will stop the blood from flowing any more. Do not use this for bleeding nose.
For a bloody nose smell vinegar until the bleeding stops, it should stop within a very shirt period of time, the vinegar burns the blood vessel ends
Apply an ice bag to the affected area to slow bleeding.
