I just cut on my thigh. What do I do afterward?
Yes, it was self-harm. I just cut on my thigh, and I was bleeding so I wiped up the blood gently. I put a damp rag on it, put an ice pack on it, and wrapped my leg in an ace bandage as well to act as a torniquet somehow. What else should I do to clean up after myself and my cuts? Thanks in advance :)

Wipe the area with some alcohol to keep infection away and yes, it may burn for a minute but better then an infection. Hon, try to find another coping method soon
