Apply pressure on the area for about 10 minutes by using a cotton ball or a gauze. The bleeding should stop by then. You may also apply cold compression with an ice cube for few minutes. You can coat the area with a vaseline once the bleeding stopped. That will serve as a barrier to avoid from getting irritated thereafter.

Take care !
