Signs You Should Visit the ER:

• Excessive bleeding that doesn't stop with direct pressure

• Cuts over a joint or a deep puncture wound

• Loss of function or numbness

• Signs of infection like warmth, swelling, or pus

• Tetanus concerns, especially if it's been over 5 years since your last shot.

Why Prompt Attention Matters:
