These are wounds to the skin common especially in childhood. A cut severs the skin, such as is inflicted by a sharp object; an abrasion rubs and/or scratches the surface, such as the common scraped knee; and a bruise results from forceful pressure against some object, where the skin is not broken so the blood rushes to the damaged tissue beneath the surface.
The appearance of these wounds is well?known; however, certain cuts such as those that are deep and wide may require immediate attention by a doctor to prevent scarring. If the bleeding does not stop using the following methods, or if blood gushes in bright spurts, you should seek medical attention immediately.
