The wound may be minor and near the surface of the skin. Or it can be more serious, affecting deeper tissues of the hip or thigh, such as tendons, muscles, ligaments, nerves, blood vessels, or bone.</p> <h3>More to Know</h3> <p>Treat minor wounds at home with <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/firstaid-kit.html/">first aid</a>. Seek immediate medical attention if a wound won't stop bleeding, is more than an inch long, or appears to be deep or gaping. Doctors may try to <a href="https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/parents/stitches.html/">close the wound</a> with stitches, tape, or an adhesive glue.</p> <h3>Keep in Mind</h3> <p>Deep, large, and dirty wounds need more care. (A "dirty" wound is one that germs have gotten into.) After a child receives medical attention for a hip or thigh wound, follow instructions carefully to prevent infection and minimize scarring.</p> <p><em>A to Z dictionary entries are regularly reviewed by KidsHealth medical experts.</em></p>
