the time limit for stitches is roughly 4 hours. After that, the skin will not knit well. Unless its seriously deep needing sutures, your likely to get not much more than liquidskin or butterfly type banages. Good call to not waste your time and money on a trip to the ER.

there are many very cheap clotting agents around. one of the cheapest and fastest is Cayenne Pepper. You can put a tablespoon or so into 2-3 ounces of sterile water in a sterile plastic bottle. shake and Pour that onto even a deep cut to the bone, the bleeding will stop in a matter of seconds as well as decrease the chance of scaring. Bleeding ulcer or other internal gastral bleading from trauma? DRINK the mixture. It will stop the bleeding allowing you time to get to medical help. Cayenne pepper and a closed/sterile bottle of eyewash solution should be in your first aid pack! It could save your life!
