Brief Answer:
Clean with antiseptic solution and upload more information

Detailed Answer:
Hello
I share your concern
I will definitely help you out in best possible way,
If you can upload me a photograph and complete medical history like
if you are diabetic or having high blood pressure
Length if the cut and site?

Meanwhile you can apply antiseptic solutions like povidone iodine solution and cover the wound with sterile dressings
If it's large cut than it may require suturing and you need to visit ER for that.

If it's on extremities than limb elevation will help in reducing bleeding.
You can also apply tourniquet to stop bleeding which can be released periodically.

Hope this answers your question
Follow up questions are most welcome
Thanks and regards
