basic first aid.

A: Yes, if you removed the wad of towels if could have started to bleed again. It could have also pulled the clot formed to stop the bleeding away and reopened the wound. You did nothing wrong.

basic first aid

A: Hand and foot injuries both bleed a whole lot. This is nothing to worry about. Keep pressure on it and make sure to clean it and apply ointment twice a day. The bleeding should stop within 48 hours. Because there are so many small blood vessels in the hand, the bleeding will take a little longer to slow down and stop than in other injuries.

If you have any futher questions, feel free to ask.  -Pamela...
