Cut thumb still bleeding

Patient: I have a seemingly deep cut in my thumb. The wound is not wide, but it continued bleeding for more than ten minutes. I applied pressure for that amount of time, but it still bled. Right now I have my thumb tightly wrapped in gauze. At what point should I consider visiting a hospital if the wound isn’t closing quickly?

 

 

Symptoms: Bleeding
