Scrotum area cut while shaving. Is this serious?

I accidentally cut a tiny blood vessel on the surface area of my scrotum while shaving. It was bleeding for about ten minutes and then stopped. There is no bleeding from the vessel nor the scrotum surface area for about an hour or so. That tiny blood vessel cut seems as it has been detached from the surface area of the scrotum. It is about one centimeter long, in the middle of the scrotum, between the two testicles. What do you think about the situation and what should I do?

Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have
cutting injury to scrotal skin while shaving the area which bled for 10 minutes.

Do not worry scrotal skin is enormous capacity to heal up even without suturing.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics along with anti inflammatory medication like Diclofenac twice daily .

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.

Please ensure to clean the wound with antiseptic solution like Betadine twice daily .
