Show full transcript for Capillary Bleeding video

Capillary bleeding refers to superficial abrasion wounds. Treatment involves initial oozing control, cleaning, and after-treatment. First, you should dab off any excess blood.  Next, apply a triple antibiotic or aseptic ointment. Finally, bandage the wound, being careful not to apply adhesive to any part of the abrasion.
