Should I seek professional cut treatment?
Not every injury requires care from a medical professional. Some can be treated at home by cleaning the affected area with a disinfecting solution and covering it with a bandage. However, it’s important to promptly seek cut treatment from a doctor, like those at Lifeline Urgent Care, if your injury:
Has substantial bleeding or gapes open
Has debris that is difficult to remove or was caused by a rusty or dirty object
Is showing signs of infection, including expanding redness, swelling, red streaking, discharge from the cut, or fever
Is from an animal or human bite
Call 911 immediately if you or someone around you has a cut that is associated with uncontrollable bleeding or loss of consciousness.
What does cut treatment involve?
Your ideal course of cut treatment will vary according to the specifics of your injury. Treatment generally begins by cleaning out and sterilizing the wound to prevent infection. From there, our physicians may dress the wound or administer sutures or stitches, if necessary. We can also provide tetanus shots, as well as perform clinical lab testing and digital X-ray imaging.
