What’s a laceration?
“Laceration” is another term for a cut. Minor cuts will often heal on their own, but deeper ones usually require stitches to heal properly. You should immediately call 911 if a cut is bleeding severely, blood is spurting out of the wound, or you can’t stop the bleeding after applying pressure to it.
When should I seek medical attention?
You should come to our urgent care center if you suffer a laceration and have not had a tetanus shot in five to ten years. You should also be seen by our staff if a cut needs stitches. You should get stitches if the wound is jagged, deep, or appears to be gaping.If the cut is somewhere on the body where scarring is a concern, such as a face, you should consider getting stitches to minimize it.Finally, if a cut continues to bleed after about 20 minutes, the area feels numb, or you aren’t able to use a limb correctly, you should come and see our doctors immediately.
What other injuries can you treat?
Marlboro Urgent Care Center can provide diagnosis and treatment for sprains, strains, and fractures. If you take a nasty fall or awkwardly twist a limb in a way it shouldn’t be twisted, you might suffer one of these three conditions. Unlike the advice from a baseball coach, you shouldn’t attempt to “walk it off” until you fully understand what is going on. You risk hurting yourself further, especially if your injury is a fracture.
At our walk-in urgent care center, we have a digital x-ray available 7 days a week for our doctors and staff.This powerful diagnostic tool will help our physicians get you the answers you need.
