Medical question. My DD bumped her head.

She bumped her head and there is a small laceration and it bleed more than i thought it should but it's on the head so i figured it's normal not like 2 hours later i said you wanna take your band aid off and she said no but then said yes and i took it off and before when i asked it looked like it had stopped bleeding now it is bleeding again and not a lot but steady when i wipe it it starts again I put a new band aid on and it hasn't bleed threw but should i take her to the doc?

  • For some reason when you cut your head it takes forever to stop bleeding... Unless she is acting funny i'd say she's fine. You said it only starts bleeding when you wipe it? That's probably because you are breaking up the clots that are forming when you wipe it or remove the bandaid..

  • Well it's a little late for stitches probably, but the peds can butterfly it. What works better is ice oh and don't give her motrin because it can thin the blood
