Remove the sting with a tweezers. Relieve the pain by using bicarbonate solution when it is a bee-bite or other insect bite. In case of other stings, apply vinegar.

Deep cuts with severe bleeding

Tilt the head slightly forward to prevent any blood being swallowed. Gently squeeze the nostrils and continue to apply pressure for about 20 minutes squeeze the mistrials and continue to apply pressure for about 20 minutes and then let him breathe through the mouth. Leave the nostril and give him ice cubes to keep in the mouth to hold it under the upper lip. The cooling will slow down the flow of the blood and stop bleeding. If nose bleeding has been caused by accident then placing an ice pack or a bag of frozen corn at the nose, will reduce swelling.

The cut is in the place that will rub against clothing.

Wash the cut with spirit or warm water to remove any external matter and scrub it with dry clean towel to free it off dust particles. Now apply antibiotic cream and bandage it, if the cut is in the place that will rub against clothing.

The patient must be rushed to the doctor in case bleeding does not stop.

To stop bleeding apply direct pressure on the cut with the help of sterile gauze pads or a clean cloth. Continue to press the cut for 15 minutes. Add further pads on top if the blood seeps through the one used earlier and wrap sufficient gauze around the pads to put more pressure.

Try to raise the wound above the level of heart if possible and put ice bag over dressing.

A deep cut in torso caused by sharp object will be serious and may cause serious sucking chest wound. In such case the wound should be covered with the dressing; leaving one corner loose so that the patient can breathe easily. The sucking wound can also be covered with a plastic bag, folded aluminium foil or a piece of plastic, if dressing is not available.

I got bitten by a bee and just pulled the sting out with my bare fingers and applied medication and a centimetre plaster and went about life.
Pressure stops the bleeding but the biggest thing is Iron and stitches and being careful.
Say this as a person with a blood disorder who has been there.
