Bleeding after razor cut on leg. How to stop bleeding?

i got a razor cut while shaving my leg and it started bleeding really bad. it was heavily bleeding and there was tiny round squishy bubble looking plates coming out of the wound. there were about 10 of them and they stayed in that shape unless i mashed it under my hand a couple of times, then they turned into goo. what was that? im just curious. and how do you stop a razor cut from bleeding so much, other than using a bandaid..

Hi Darian,
Thanks for writing your query.

Bleeding from any injury can be stopped by applying ice or ice packs over the bleeding area. If the bleeding is severe, pressure should be applied, by hand or by tying some bandage or clean cloth proximal to the injured area. if the bleeding still persists medical help should be immeditely taken.

I hope this is helpful to you.
