Try sprinkling a little cayenne pepper on your small wound. If there is a small amount of bleeding it should generally seize within 10-15 seconds. Sounds like it should hurt, doesn’t it? Well actually cayenne pepper is a really good aid to help heal wounds and stop infection from occurring. Needless to say if you have really injured yourself it is also best to seek immediate medical attention.
Give it a try next time, see if it helps you.
