Styptic Powder For Wounds


Bronze Feedback Medal for All Time! 147 Feedbacks

I use styptic powder to stop bleeding instantly. Once while scratching my ankle, I accidentally nicked the vein and started bleeding profusely. No matter what I did I couldn't get it to stop because it was in a difficult place to reach. Desperate and thinking I had to go to the emergency room ($) to get it to stop, I then remembered the powder I sprinkle on my dog's toes after nicking them with the clipper.

I got it out and sprinkled it on my ankle. It stung for just a second but the bleeding stopped instantly. From now on my first aid kit will have systolic power in it. The power can be purchase at any pet supply store or online pet store. Check with your doctor first before using it on a child or if you have a medical condition that might be aggravated by using the powder. It saved me a lot of money.

Do you mean styptic powder? It is also sold on beauty and barber supply stores and the shaving section of some grocery stores. Powder is better but if you are using it only on yourself the styptic pencil is good too, you dampen the end and run it on the injury.

Do you mean styptic powder? Systolic refers to the upper reading of blood pressure.

Could you spell what it says on the label? As others have noted, styptic sounds more plausible in this case.

You must mean styptic powder made from alum. They can also be bought in a pencil form you can hold on a cut.

MY Mistake! I really meant STYPTIC POWDER not Systolic! Guess I'm getting old. The ingredients are: Benzocaine, Ferric, Subsulfate, Aluminum Sulfate, Bentonite, Diatomaceous Earth & Sulfer.

I now stand corrected. Thank You.

There are many different chemicals it can be made out of as well as contra-indications, depending if you are on medications it would be a No No for.
Check it out before need for use.
Styptic powder used to be a part of all shaving kits which included the straight (strap) razor or even the straight edged.

Sprinkling corn starch or even flour will help stanch bleeding. That came from my vet when my dog scratched inside his ear and had a bleed.

My dog (Dogue de Bordeaux) just ripped her toenail off jumping up at the gate. About half a cupful of blood was the result but as soon as I placed her wound in a bowl of flour, is ceased immediately.
