When we get a cut, why excessive blood cells are not flowing out?

When our skin got cut, scraped, or punctured, we start bleeding. Within some time, a type of blood cell, platelets, start clumping together and forming a clot. This clot protects the wound and prevents excessive blood loss. The clot is formed from platelets and a protein known as fibrin, which forms a mesh-like network to trap and hold the clot in place.

As the wound get covered with the clot, exudates from blood vessels ooze out that provide nutrients and oxygen to the wound required for healing.
