Today at school, I got scratched repeatedly by a boy
Patient :Today at school, I got scratched repeatedly by a boy in my class on purpose. I was bleeding from my hand, and there are deep red scratch marks across the back of my hand and some of my skin is now peeling. It burns whenever I touch it to something. The area where the scratches are is too big to use even a large bandaid, is there something I can wrap it with? Gauze, maybe? What should I clean it with? I used soap and water but it seems to be getting inflamed. Thank you in advance- Kendra
