A laceration is a cut on the skin that is irregular and separates tissue that connects the skin. These torn wounds are typically uneven and cause blood to flow out of the wound.

  • Bleeding
  • An open gap or cut on the skin
  • Pain at the injury site

Fortunately, lacerations are easily diagnosed and cared for. Treatment for lacerations depends on the severity, with minor cuts being able to be cared for with bandages, and more serious lacerations needing stitches.
