Just thought of a peeling cuticle or hangnail send shivers down my spine. Even though it looks small, it isn’t pretty and it definitely can cause pain. Ouch!
If you have a hangnail, the most important thing is to avoid peeling it off all together because that could ultimately lead to the area hurting way more or even a nasty infection. Instead of peeling it, the best thing to way to treat a hangnail is to soak your fingers in warm water. This will soften the area around the hangnail. Next, use nail scissors or a nail clipper to cut off the hangnail. Once you’ve done that, you can cover the area with Vaseline or Neosporin and a band-aid if you want to make sure it heels the right way.
