    Sometimes it cannot be helped that you suffer a cut that will bleed profusely. The impulse (which is actually the scientific approach) is to place something on the cut to stop the bleeding. Usually it is a hanky but sometimes the socks can serve the purpose. But when there are trees with soft leaves in the vicinity, that can be used as artificial bandage. Just place it on the cut and tie the leaf or leaves with straw or even sturdy grass. The bleeding will stop after a minute.

    It's true that urine has no bacteria if you are healthy, but applying it to a wound, I'm not sure how exactly would work, scientifically speaking.

    The best way to stop bleeding wound is to put pressure on the site for a few minutes. Putting tourniquet a few inches about the wound will also make the bleeding stop.

    Kerosene was applied to my bruised knee once. It was suggested by a neighbor and it worked. I don't the working behind that and maybe the implications. Anyone heard that before?

    In our neighborhood, when there are bleeding cuts minor or major, the first thing that we would do is take some moringa leaves (drumstick tree) and pound those leaves until it produces a nectar and becomes moist. Then drop those nectar or juices to the wounded area and cover the leaves to the area after. That works well and it heals the wound eventually after a couple of days. :)

    I have done that. Always played with knives and one time a big hunting knife of my escaped from my hands while I was swinging it around. I managed to catch it mid air but it opened a deep but small cut in my hand. It bled so much I thought I was gearing up for the next BBQ haha. But yes I put a lot of pressure on it with a clean rag, disinfected it and then applied bandages around it.
