Customer Question
I have a pin...

I have a pin sized hole on my face. It was scabed over and I inadvertently scratched it. Now it won't stop bleeding even after 2 + hrs

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?

Just tonight and no other issues, but I'm on Plavix.

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

I'm diabetic.

Age 71 took plavix last night 75mg . Have applied pressure for about 3 hrs. Don't know how to upload picture. Blood keeps obscuring skin.
Health Professional: Dr. Anil, Doctor (MD) replied 6 months ago

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, you should miss your Plavix today dose.

And apply cool compresses with an Ice pack on the affected area.

You should clean the wound with betadine solution.

And afterward, apply OTC Bacitracin ointment.

Pressure it with a sterile gauze for 10-15 minutes.

In case your bleeding is persistent then see a doctor in an emergency room for prompt management.

You should see your doctor and get your PTI INR test before continuing your Plavix.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
