Compression for at least five minutes while holding/resting it above the level of your heart. Good luck with it.

You can put ice in a tea-towel or similar and then apply this for 20 mins max. ONCE ONLY. ie NOT 20 mins on and then off. Just 20 mins once only.

Cold water can prevent/dislodge clotting.

If it is a nice clean cut you can use superglue to close it up. Only round the edges though, not inside.

Otherwise dip it in a jar of vinegar, won't do any good apart from teach you to be more careful in the future.

Quite right and having a medicinal glass of wine!
Mr Star came home and patched me up. My bandage is now thumb size again and i can type. Still throbbing but am sure it will go off with a few more glasses of wine...Hic!

Thanks for all your concern including Benzoid for the vinegar advice...its all logged away for future reference along with that bus joke...
