    Hi there - if it is a waterproof plaster or one of those with silver in, they can stay on a couple of days - just keep an eye if the wound if weeping or showing any sign of infection - redness, pain etc. Hope it is not a deep cut and heals very soon. XX Aidan

    its a fabric plaster. I cut myself attempting to pull off the lid of a tin. Its not deep bit it bled a lot at first, but I washed it and used wound cleaner and antibiotic cream. I did about 1pm so I am inclined to leave it till tomorrow night or maybe Friday norning

    It should be fine, if you can leave it another 24 hours then have a re check -
    If it needs a clean, just some cooled boiled water with some salt in would be good. Glad it is not a deep cut :) XX
