Foul Smelling Blood

When I accedently cut myself today at school, my blood started to smell really bad. That of a smell of a skunk. I was wondering if it’s just a sickness or somthing like that. I wash my hands after I go to the bathroom and all that. I don’t know if it’s just from me getting some dirt on my hands or something and it mixing with the blood or if it’s just normal for blood to smell like that. Can someone please help me?

Answer #1

Sounds like something to be really concerned about. As others have said, you should consult your doctor about it.

Answer #2

It could be that you just have a lot of iron in your blood. That causes blood to have a really strong smell and can be sickening. Consult your doctor about it.

Answer #3

ugh I can always smell blood it smellz so bad O-e …from anyone and every1

Answer #4

Blood with high iron content has a coppery smell to it. Stronger than normal. It’s not going to smell like a skunk’s stink. Either you’re sick, big time, or it was a combination of smells overwhelming you. Was your blood discolored in anyway, like a lot darker than it should have been?
