Did you know that in some cases pepper has been used to stop bleeding? Dr. Robert Lee of Beth Medical Center recommends that you wash the affected area first with water and soap and then sprinkle pepper and apply gentle pressure. It will not sting since pepper is analgesic, anti-bacterial and has antiseptic properties.
