get pieces of clean cloth, first use the first cloth to compressed the part where theres wound.. use full pressure using the palm of your hand to compress it together with the cloth... take another cloth and compressed it again. if theres too much blood flow and you run out of cloth then try to squeeze the excess blood of the use cloth and use it again to compress then tight it... it is important to have a first aid handy in your home... and if you have wound and if its bleeding, try to compress it first before cleaning it..

Most times putting pressure on the injury will get the bleeding to stop. As well as raising the injury above the level of your heart. If it's a deep injury or if the pressure is not stopping the bleeding then I suggest you get yourself to a hospital. That depends to on how you got the injury. If was with something made of medal then really go to the hospital and get yourself a tetnus shot.

Depending on where the injury is you should raise the leg up and put a cloth around the injury to soak up the blood. What kind of injury is it?
