This morning I caught my (short) fingernail on something and lifted the nail a little bit up. It stings like hell, and there’s a line underneath the nail where the lifting occurred. It also grosses me out big time to look at or just think about. Otherwise, it feels like it’s in its proper place, such as it is.
Anything I can do to treat it or help it along, or is time the only healer here?
Man oh, man! Couldn’t you describe fingernails on a chalkboard, instead.:eek:
I often paint ‘liquid bandage*’ on fingernail issues. Or cut it as short as you can get it to the line you see. Might hurt a bit. Then bandage with a good soft bandaid. And in a few days it will harden up and you can just wait for the nail to grow back.
And again, “Gah!!!”
*found near the bandaide section in a store.
You’re looking at Ms. Wimp. I have no problem pulling the cannula out of my guts and changing my insulin pump location. I lanced my fingertips for decades. Gave my self injections. But superglue scares me. Go figure? I have considered that gel superglue.
