Any kind of serious damage to the body occurs then it is advisable to consult a doctor immediately.

    When bullet wounds occur on arms or legs then if the wound is bleeding a lot then control the bleeding by tying with a cloth. If the bleeding is not so serious then let the wound bleed for a short while so that it will clean out. Wash the wound with boiled water and soap and apply bandage on it. Give the antibiotics then.
