This morning I scraped off a lil dime sized spot of skin just below my knee while I was shaving.
It bled a lot but I put a lil round band-aid on it and forgot about it.
I just went to check the bandaid and it looked like there was a dot of blood on the outside. I pushed on the band-aid a lil and blood squished out of it and trickled down my leg and into my sock.

Apparently I have lost all my clotting factor.

So we'll be moving on to an elmers glue seal here in a second.

Elmer's is more appropriate......... it will blend in well with her skin.

Ouch! And yuck!

I had similar problems when I started shaving my head. I was sure a couple of times that skull would be showing from the skin I sliced off. For some reason those cuts were very slow to clot too.

It's because the edges of the cut are all shiny-smooth. Nothing for the platelets to grab onto. Rough it up with some 400-grit.

But seriously, go get some vitamin K. If you're not actually heamophiliac, not having enough K is the most common cause of this, well, aside from things that have lots of other obvious symptoms.

I thought potassium. Or am I confusing my K's?
