Blood remaining within the circumference of the wound

Q: After shaving my private area there are very small cuts like little pricks. When I dab them with a tissue sometimes a little dot of blood appears and sometimes not. After making ghusl I apply oil to my body including private area I cannot be certain if it is bleeding after ghusl or not and if I have smeared the blood or not. Does it matter if it is smeared or not,the cut is like a prick of a pin and only a small dot of blood appears sometimes when I dab it.


A: If the blood does not surpass the area of the wound, the wudhu will not break.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
