I'm a 16 year old girl. Today I swam at the beach in some rough waves with lots of little bits of seaweed and sea grass. When I took a shower my bathing suit had a few small pieces in it. While I was washing down there it hurt really bad in one place. I looked it up and this place is called the perineum. With the help of a mirror, I noticed a tiny cut/hole that was bleeding a tiny bit. It doesn't burn when I pee or anything, only when I wipe. It's been over 6 hours and it's still bleeding a tiny bit. Did I get a cut from seaweed or is this something else? How long would something like this take to heal?
