I Have been bleeding from my arm, for an hour.. Is that normal.?
I itched my arm and I have been bleeding ever since. It has been like an hour and I am still bleeding! Anyone know how to make it stop or if you know how to make it bleed slower even?

put pressure on it!! it suppose to be raised....if it doesnt stop call the ER and ask what to do

Michelle B
no what happend to you

Put the part of your arm that is bleeding so that it is higher then your heart. It's a gravity thing. If it doesn't stop soon, or if the bleeding is heavy, I would go to emergency room. Or call your Doctor office, sometimes they have on call nurses, 24 hours a day.

To help stop the bleeding, first wipe and run cold water on the wound. The platelets in your blood should coagulate and stop the bleeding. But you should definitely go see a doctor. You definitely seem to have some immune deficiency going on. Also if you're itching don't scratch so hard. Go buy some anti-itch lotion.

is it heavy....that's not normal.

if your not putting pressure on it, then yea it's normal.

if it is bleeding through bandages and what not, it's not normal.

probably need sitches.

call the doctor and ask them what to do.

omg call a doctor or or or idk

if you are bleeding heavily then take something and tie it around your arm below the spot, and go to the doctor. if it's not that bad then put some Neosporin on it, and place a band aid on it.

you need to go to the hospital ASAP.

this may be serious, stop the bleeding somehow like by putting a towel over it, if theres a lot of blood u may need to get stiching

Daniel W
no u should go to hospital and get them check for something wrong like internal bleeding from vane anything

Ok go wash your hands, and get a small rag and cover up the bleeding spot.
That will put pressure on it and will cause it to stop.
If its STILL bleeding even after 30 minutes go to the hospital.
Put a band-aid on it.

Good luck

I'm not too sure, but depending on how severe the bleeding is, you should go to the doctor if it doesn't stop soon.

Get a family member to ring the hospital immeadiately. You need to get to the hospital before you loose all your blood and you get weak. Or even die.

Call 911 that's not normal U can get dizzy and die because you don't have that many blood left

Rachel J
Get to a Doctor, for some reason you have either hit something that might need a stitch, OR you have consumed enough alcohol or medication or have a condition where you are not making enough clotting factor. If your a vegitarian sometimes the amount of green food/seed extract can seriously thin your blood. Also pain relievers like Alieve will thin your blood. An hour is quite a while, you should run it past a doctor asap. Take Care hun.-Rachel.

call you doctor!!!!! how bad is it it meand you blood clot count is low and that can be bad call a doctor or go see one

call the doctors tell then what happened and if they tell you to go the the hospital then go! that doesn't sound normal though

raise your arm and squezze the cut if that dosent help go to the doctor

John M
no it is not normal, you have cut a main vain and need to see a doctor. don't try to drive you could pass out, call 911 and get help to you faster.

Wheres the cut. If on a major vein (one you can clearly see if to stress and relex your arm. If on a major vein go to the dr.
Before that patch it up and wait a few minutes. (20 at least)
to see if it stops. Chances are that if its not on a vein your probelly unknowingly have a tendency to scratch it. There by ripping away the scap and causing it to bleed.

You have to apply firm continuos pressure to the area with a bandage or sterile gauze. You may have a problem with clotting factors and should see a dr to get it stopped. Bleeding that long is not normal.

you need to put pressure on it like your thumb not to hard though but hard enough maybe with tissue or a cloth and depending on the cut and how deep it is it might take a while

Chances are your anemic which could be due to low iron levels in your blood. I'd suggest getting a blood test done to verify your iron count to make sure you're not anemic. Hold something over the sore and keep pressure on it. This usually stops the bleeding because it allows one layer of blood to hold there and form the scab.

try really cold water or salt and water mixed and just hold preasure ok mama

Oh !!

R u ok ????


If you have kept pressure on the wound for that long and your still bleeding you need to go to the emergency room. A small wound should have already formed a clot. Good luck!

Chunky Monkey
uhhh..... call 911?

Somebody else
Did you try a band-aid? Use Neosporin too, if you have some. Also, stop picking at it.

Direct pressure with a clean cloth (preferably thick, like a towel)

Read this link below for first aid for minor injuries.
It is very helpful.

Spreading a petroleum product, like Chapstick, or vaseline on something will slow the bleeding a lot, or even stop it... but will often cause scarring.

Rubbing alcohol will cause the blood vessels to constrict, and slows the bleeding that way.

Get a few tissues, double them over, put them on it, and tie them down with some cloth for a while. The tissues will probably get stuck when you try to take it off, but that's OK. You can cu them off, and they'll mostly disintigrate when you take a shower.

If you're feeling super-tough, you can cauterize the wound, by putting a hot iron against it for a bit, That will definitely scar though, and you'll usually get a wound that oozes clear stuff. Yucky. Just kidding, don't do that.
