A cut on my leg is leaking "water"?
I cut my leg, at first it bled........ now it is leaking what appears to be water......... it soaked through the band-aid. Why would water be coming out of my leg????? Additional Details Just cut my leg about 20 minutes ago, so... it's not infected yet. .
Well, how big is the cut. If it's a serious cut, don't put neosporin or peroxide on it...go to the doctor. If it's a minor cut, then what others have said is good advice.
idk but it's probably not water
That sounds more like pus. It could be infected, so I suggest putting an anesthetic on the cut, and go to a doctor if it gets worse.
try cleaning the cut with some hydrogen peroxide, this should clean it. it shouldn't be water, but perhaps puss. depending on whether or not it is infected.
It isn't water... It's just another fluid coming from your body. Probably pus.
It is not water, it is called intersticial fluid. Is your leg infected??
put the bandaid on looser- squeezing it will cause the fluid to leak out.
its not puss!!!!!!!!!!
mine does it all the time when i get a cut and its definatley not puss.
'weeping wound' is when plasma fromthe blood just leaks out as its trying to heal.
Depending on how long ago you cut it, it could be puss. I'd make sure to clean it with antibacterial soap and put some neosporin on it. Keep an eye on it if it gets red and inflammed or any other signs of infection I'd go to the Dr.
It's not water it's pus your leg it infected and you need to go to the doctor. Or at least put some peroxide or neosporin on it. If it gets worse it should turn red around the cut and ooze white pus.
That is lymphatic fluid and antihystamines trying to heal the wound. Do not touch it or scratch, change the band aid and keep it clean with a good antiseptic wash and a drop of tincture of iodine. After 24 hours, if it looks o.k, remove the band aid and let the fresh air circulate, but keep it clean and do not fiddle with it. It needs to form a scap which assists to protect it while the natural healing takes place under it.
Depending where the cut is, more fluid may seep, do not touch it. However, if the cut is large go have some stitches placed or it will leave a bad scar to say the least, the skin needs to close or you will face septic problems.
(The iodine will help to keep it sterile and dry but if you need stitches do not use it the skin edges need to be fresh to seal well together).
