Bleeding under the skin

Just doing some DIY work at home and managed to get the side of my finger caught in some pliers. Hurt for a split second, but it's started to bleed underneath the skin as the skin didn't break. Now, should I get a knife or something to make a small cut and drain the blood out or leave it as it?

Good ol' chicken!

    I'd get rid of the whole finger mate. Just lob it off.

    I've just always left it and let it take care of itself.
    Is it a dark color right now?

    too funny AW.

    Beauty is a habit of the mind.

    this is what i do in these situations. get a pin make a small hole in the corner of the lump. then press down on the other side creating a jet of blood. very satisfying.

    It's ugly as hell, but at least it diverts the attention away from the calluses.

    @AW, it's my bogie picking finger, so no go!

    Good ol' chicken!

    My dad has arthritus in his bogie picker... I guess 48 years of over use finally caught up with him
