    Sounds like a dark book, if you are looking for the brutal route, intense heat (say from a clothes iron, hot pan, hot metal utensil, ect.) when applied directly to a wound for a couple will cauterize (seal) it. If she is related to someone who was or is in the military in your book, then quick clot is also an option. It is a powder that you apply directly to the wound to quickly close it. You don't have to be in the military to get it, it's just that mostly military personel and vets know about it. Like Mark Wahlberg's character in Shooter after he buys it from that store when he is on the run. Other than that, conventional anti-biotics, and bandaging would be your best option.

    Back in the old west, wounds were "cauterized" by heating a knife or even a branding iron over a fire or kerosene flame and then burning the flesh around the wound.

    Fill it with gunpowder from a bullet...touch a flame to it.

    When writer's get themselves into these problems, the way out is not to have her stab herself.

    Fire. Use a hot pan or something to cauterize it.

    Direct pressure. You said "she"; use a feminine napkin and apply direct pressure. I was actually taught this in a first aid class. Feminine napkins are pretty much absorbent sterile bandages.

    Super glue can be used to "suture" a wound closed after the bleeding is stopped. Emergency rooms actually use super glue for small wounds now days.
