A genital injury is a bruise or cut around the genital area. They are usually minor bruises (with swelling) or cuts that heal in 3 or 4 days.
For minor cuts, wash the area vigorously with soap and water for 5 minutes. Then apply pressure for 10 minutes with a sterile gauze to stop bleeding. For bruising or swelling, apply a cold, wet compress or ice for 20 minutes (if tolerated). Give acetaminophen or ibuprofen as needed for pain relief. Don't use aspirin because it may prolong the bleeding.
