Stop Bleeding
« on: September 18, 2012, 12:26:38 PM »

Have you ever been in a rush and cut yourself while shaving? Or have you forgotten that your razor was new and raked it across your skin, leaving a thin trail of blood behind? If you have, you’re not alone. Just about everyone has nicked their skin with a razor blade at some point, probably on more than one occasion. If you’ve nicked your skin recently and want to know how to stop it from bleeding, try these 10 tips.
1. Apply Cold Water Or Ice To The Cut...

Wet a washcloth with cold water or simply grab an ice cube and apply it to the cut. The blood vessels will constrict from the cold, which will cause the flow of blood to slow and eventually form a clot.

2. ...Or Apply Hot Water Instead

The hot water will essentially cauterize the area and stop the bleeding. Just wet a washcloth with hot water and apply it to the area. You may need to repeat this process a few times until the bleeding stops. Remember to hold the cloth firmly against your skin; don’t rub it over the area.
3. Just Apply Pressure

The cut should stop bleeding completely from the pressure alone. Simply press a clean cloth against the cloth and hold it there firmly for a minutes.
4. Put Some Witch Hazel On The Cut

Dip a Q-tip or a cotton ball into some witch hazel and gently apply it to the cut. Witch hazel is an astringent and, like the cold water or ice, will cause the blood vessels to constrict. But, unlike the cold water or ice, the witch hazel will sting.
5. Use Lip Balm

Yes, lip balm can help your cut stop bleeding. The waxy texture can help seal the skin and allow a blood clot to form. If you don’t want to dirty your lip balm, use Vaseline instead. It works in the same way as lip balm, so dab a bit onto the nick to seal it instantly.
6. Use Deodorant

Who knew so many personal care products could stop a shaving nick from bleeding? Deodorant works in this situation because it contains aluminum chloride or a derivative of it. According to Dr. Jeffrey Benabio, author of The Dermatology Blog, the aluminum chloride acts as a hemostatic agent, allowing the blood clot to form. Just swipe a bit of deodorant onto your fingertip or a cotton swab and apply it to the nick.
7. Use A Styptic Pencil

A styptic pencil, or styptic stick, works in the same way that the deodorant does. Styptic pencils usually contain titanium dioxide or a form of sulfate, which will help the blood clot quickly. Styptic pencils can be found at a variety of pharmacies and beauty supply stores.
8. Pour Some Sugar On It

A spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down, but it can also get a small cut to stop bleeding. The sugar will also act as a disinfectant, killing any bacteria that may be lingering in the wound. Just sprinkle a few granules into the cut and hold closed for a few minutes. You can also use cayenne pepper or black pepper, which have the same effect, but they will sting upon entering the wound.
9. Make A Paste From Aspirin

Aspirin has many interesting uses and one of them is healing cuts caused by shaving. Simply dissolve a tablet in a glass of water. Stick a cotton ball or Q-tip into the solution and swab it onto your cut. This will also soothe the skin that’s been irritated by the razor blade.
10. Use Products Designed To Stop Cuts From Bleeding

There are many products that are made to stop shaving nicks and small cuts from bleeding. For instance, QR powder stops the bleeding instantly as does Alum Block, a 100 percent natural mineral bar that’s designed to heal cuts and nicks from shaving.

Small cuts and nicks won’t bleed for very long, so if you’re not in a hurry, just clean the cut with soap and water and stick a Band-Aid over it. Keeping a Band-Aid over the cut initially is a good idea any way as it can protect the area from clothing, blankets, etc. After a day, let the cut air out so it can heal quickly.

If you constantly are dealing with nicks and cuts from shaving, there are some things you can do to prevent them. For starters, make sure you moisturize the area before and after shaving. Shave in the direction in which the hair grows and make sure the razor blade is brand new or at least clean. If you feel the cause of your cuts is the razor itself, try using a different type of razor.

ঘরোয়া উপায়ে খুব সহজে বন্ধ করুন রক্তপাত

১। বরফ

সবার বাসার ফ্রিজে বরফ থাকে। আর এই বরফ রক্ত বন্ধ করার খুব ভাল একটা উপায়। কেটে যাওয়া স্থানে কয়েকটি বা একটি বরফের টুকরো চেপে ধরে রাখুন। কিছুক্ষণ পরেই দেখতে পারবেন রক্ত বন্ধ হয়ে গেছে।
২। হলুদ গুঁড়া

রান্নাঘরে সবচেয়ে সহজলভ্য উপাদান হল হলুদ। এই হলুদ গুঁড়ো দিয়ে খুব সহজে রক্ত বন্ধ করা যায়। হলুদ প্রাকৃতিক অ্যান্টিসেপটিক। কাটা স্থানে কিছু হলুদ গুঁড়ো লাগিয়ে নিন। দেখবেন রক্তপাত বন্ধ হয়ে গিয়েছে এবং ক্ষত দ্রুত সেরেও গিয়েছে।
৩। লবণ পানি

লবণ পানি খুব ভাল প্রাকৃতিক প্রতিষোধক। কিছু পানি নিন আর তার মধ্যে এক চিমটি লবণ দিয়ে দিন। এবার কাঁটা হাতটা পানিতে ডুবিয়ে রাখুন। প্রথমে একটু জ্বালাপোড়া করবে। কিন্তু কিছুক্ষণ পর রক্তপাত বন্ধ হয়ে যাবে।
৪। টি ব্যাগ

হঠাৎ করে হাত বা পা কেটে গেলে সেই জায়গায় ব্যবহৃত টি ব্যাগ অথবা নতুন টি ব্যাগ ঠান্ডা পানিতে ভিজিয়ে লাগিয়ে রাখুন। কিছুক্ষণের মধ্যে রক্তপাত বন্ধ হয়ে যাবে। এবং কাঁটা জায়গায় ঠান্ডা ধরণের অনুভূতি দেবে।
৫। কফি পাউডার

আপনার সকালের ঘুম ভাঙ্গে সে কফি খেয়ে সে কফির পাউডার রক্তপাত বন্ধ করতে সাহায্য করবে। যে জায়গা থেকে পড়ছে সেখানে খানিকটা কফি পাউডার ছিড়িয়ে দিন। দেখবেন রক্তপাত বন্ধ হয়ে গেছে।
