    LaLaLullaby Well-Known Member wound isn't closing. What might work is reopening it and then keeping the sides together, waiting for the blood to close it up.
    I'm not sure if that will cause a serious infection though.

    In your experience or by hearsay, what do you suggest?

    Hun, I would say that if you have a wound that isn't closing you need to get it seen to by a doctor. You could end up with a serious infection.

    Alternatively... have you tried butterfly strips?

    Really, though, sweet. Take it to a doctor.

    Thats called stitches love, and you need a doctor. If you insist on doing it yourself, you could hold both ends closed, and medical tape them together, and wrap your wrist.

    Problem with that, is only the skin over the wound will be together, not the flesh or muscles insid, depending how deep you cut. It will heal, but leave a very messy scar.

    Take the advice, see a doctor.

    The wrist? No. Thank god. I would definitely be caught haha.
    I actually have some medical tape. So I could try that.
    Butterfly strips would be a good idea, but I have no way of obtaining them.

    Thanks for the suggestions, everyone.

    Scars aren't a big deal, but thanks for the heads up.
