    Hi, sorry for the triviality of the issue but here goes.

    An hour ago I cut my finger when opening a tin of sweetcorn, it was a very minor cut but it took a couple of minutes for the bleeding to stop. The bleeding has stopped and I'm wondering how best to go about allowing it to heal. Shall I plaster over it? How long should it take?

    (Not a medical student/official)

    If it's an open wound (still bleeding) it'd be best to put a plaster over it. If it's not maybe put some aloe vera cream and leave it to heal.
