Patient :I have a cut on my leg that was self inflicted last night with a clean razor blade. It was unintentionally a lot deeper and bigger than anticipated. We've been trying to keep it closed with butterfly bandages but it doesn't like to stay closed. Has it been too long to get stitches or should I still go see a doctor? It isn't bleeding anymore but it doesn't stay closed either.
