I suppose I finally should see a doctor. Something isn't right.

I cut my finger in the kitchen. Nothing super serious just a small knife cut from cutting lettuce on my little finger. I rinsed my finger off and slapped a bandaid on and continued. I bled through that bandaid. I took it off to get a new one and even with pressure applied it wasn't letting up. I went through the piece of paper towel I was using. I grabbed a new piece and thought it stopped so I put another bandaid on. I had to change the bandaid again as I bled through. I go back with the paper towel rinse wash repeat and I finally got it to stop.

That was an awful lot for such a small cut. The cut wasn't deep either. I've never had trouble in the past getting a cut under control. Something is going on and I'll call tomorrow about trying to get in to see someone about what's been going on with me.

Some vitamins and foods are blood thinners….Vitamin E, garlic, ginger or foods with a lot of ginger in it, alcohol, turmeric, cayenne peppers, cassia cinnamon, and some supplements too.
Your plateletts are low or you take asprin or something simular to thin the blood

If it has NOW stopped bleeding, and you've made sure the cut is not infected, you need not see the doctor for a small cut. I usually bleed a lot from small cuts after I've had an aspirin.

{@deepblacknothingness] hope it is nothing too serious a few stitches might solve
