You can tie a belt, necktie or a cloth strip to keep it in place. The bleeding part can be raised from the body thus reducing the flow of the blood. Try using your thumb or hand pressure to control the bleeding.
Burns: The burnt area has to be put under cool water. You can put a cool clean cloth to the area. Always remember not to put ice on the affected place, as it will aggrevate. If the burn is severe and is a chemical burn, calm down the victim with the shock treatment. If any cloth is sticking to the burn leave it there. Try and make the victim drink lots of water.
