I've a quick question for the medical types who lurk out there.
I got hit on the back of the head last night with a flying plastic glass. Unfortunately its left a cut about 1cm which bled quite a bit initially. I went to see the first aiders at Brixton Academy who thought I might need to go to a&e, but as the bleeding had pretty much stopped we decided against it.
Overnight it looks like it's dried up and closed up a bit. So my question is what should I do to take care of it? Is there any reason I'd need to go to a&e?
Should I just let my flatmate keep an eye on it in case it starts to fester?
More importantly - when can I wash my hair? And will exercise and getting sweaty be a problem?
