Although the cut is healed and I do not feel any pain only irritation in the bleeding wound.I am applying betadine on it..why and what shall I do?

If you wound had healed not to worry the bleeding may be from skin margin. Wash with hot water do hot fomentation apply betadine and press it with tampon tightly.
