    Bleeders, aspirin and other blood thinner meds.

    Rather than derail another thread already running, is there something available OTC to stop bleeding from minor cuts and scrapes? I have read about the QuickClot but it seems to only come in the gauze form and styptic powder seldom stops bleeding very fast. I am looking for something that will stop minor bleeding quickly that is easy to use and is quick reacting.

    If you can stand the burn, get some of the stuff that bowlers use, it comes in a clear bottle and will stop bleeding quickly, but it burns pretty bad.

    For minor cuts I use superglue. It holds up a lot better than a band-aid and is water proof.
    For something deep or serious -I have not had to try myself (Thank God) CELOX granuels. It's 'sposed to work well.
    They say it will clot quickly and flushes out easily.

    Note: I'm not a doctor. I haven't even played one on TV.

    Not being a bowler do you have a brand name for the product or is it something bowling alleys keep in stock?

    Styptic pencil? it burns but will stop very minor bleeding. Your grandfather probably used it shaving.

    Clubman Styptic Pencil - 0.25 oz

    You can get them at most drug stores or probably even WalMart in the shaving section.

    CELOX Home is available in little 2g packets. It's a granular powder. Absolutely that would be your best bet.

    Search Ebay for "celox home" - buy one small packet to try it. $3.99 & $1.20 Shipping.

    Actually that is an ages old home remedy that really does work.

    My thoughts are that if any person has a real problem getting small cuts to stop bleeding then that person will be in very deep doo-doo if ever wounded in a major way and especially in a location where immediate medical attention is not quickly available. For sure I would always have CELOX handy to be prepared for that possible unfortunate scenario.

    It is just aggravating to stop what I’m doing for 10-15 minutes in order to stop the bleeding from a minor cut or scrape. Forgot about the styptic pencil, haven’t seen one in years but will try it.

    barstoolguru, sugar may do the trick but it does have its drawbacks. If a person is a diabetic that may not be the right call for minor bleeding. In a pinch maybe when there is nothing else (can always add a couple units of insulin) available.

    We have a bottle of stuff called blood stop, from the local farm store, that works on our dogs and critters.
    It says , for use on animals only, but that probably just means it works , and they would miss out on you going to the doctors office, and racking up a nice bill.
