Clear liquid??? - January 9th 2011, 03:57 PM

I cut and it bled a lot but it stopped and I put some hydrogen peroxide on it and when I took off the medical tape it was covered in clear liquid...what is that?

Most likely serum/plasma. Don't worry, that's fairly normal, even though not all that common, mostly because people don't look for it or know that it's there. I've had that with some of my cuts too.

It could be that the peroxide hadn't dried and soaked into the bandage.

Also, your body contains a fluid called "lymph." It's a clear or yellowish liquid that circulates to pick up bacteria and other unwanted things as well as delivering oxygen and nutrients to cells. It's made up of white blood cells and is part of your immune system. So sometimes when you get a cut or wound some lymph will leak out and that's probably what you're seeing. It's perfectly natural and is one of your body's way of fighting infection and healing.

Please, keep everything clean to prevent infection and whenever you feel ready to let go of self-harm, we'll be here to support you. Stay safe.
