My wife fell tonight and cut her lower lip on the outside.

Customer Question
My wife fell tonight...

My wife fell tonight and cut her lower lip on the outside. It continues to ooze blood . Is their something we can apply to stop this slow loss of blood. I have a product called wonder dust that is used to help stop bleeding in animals that have been cut. Would it be safe to use this on her lip. The cut is lower on her lip where she would not be touching it with her tongue.

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

She is suffering from back issues and is waiting to have surgery

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

She is taking asprin as a blood thinner and currently has her blood pressure under control

I understand your concern.
As per your description, she can firstly do cool compresses with an ice.

And put pressure on the wound.

She can try OTC WoundSeal Powder for human use. In combination with manual pressure to the wound, the powder quickly forms a strong scab that completely covers the wound and stops the bleeding.

You should avoid wonder dust that is used to help stop bleeding in animals only.

It's not recommended to use for humans.

You can apply OTC Polysporin ointment on the wound later.

Avoid Aspirin for 1-2 days.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
