An open wound, typically affecting the skin, is an injury involving an external or internal split in body tissue. At some point in their lives, almost everyone will experience an open wound. The majority of open wounds are superficial and are treatable at home.
There are four types of open wounds, which are classified depending on their cause.
When the skin rubs or scrapes against a rough or hard surface, an abrasion takes place. An example of an abrasion is Road Rash. Usually, there is not a lot of blood, but to prevent infection, the wound needs to be scrubbed and washed.

The deep cut or ripping of your skin is a laceration. Knives, instruments, and machinery accidents are common causes of lacerations. Bleeding can be rapid and extensive in the event of deep lacerations.
A puncture is a small hole, such as a nail or needle, created by a long, pointy object. A bullet can cause a puncture wound occasionally.
There may not be any bleeding from punctures, but these wounds may be deep enough to damage internal organs. Visit the doctor to get a tetanus shot to avoid infection if you have even a slight puncture wound.
An avulsion is a partial or absolute ripping away of the skin and the underlying tissue. During violent events, such as body-crushing accidents, explosions, and gunshots, avulsions normally occur. They bleed quickly and heavily.
