Got a nasty cut on the pad of my ring finger-
screwed up and slipped while making dinner.
It happens to be exactly where the string contacts the finger.
Ok, so I get at least a week off to mix or program music or whatever.
Besides laying off and letting it heal, anyone have anything special they do or product they use that they feel helps the process? Cut was immediately cleaned with peroxide, neosporin applied and clean bandage twice a day.
I use butterfly bandages to keep it closed, then band- aid.
Letting it get some air too, just afraid of catching it on anything and ripping it further.
Once it basically heals, i'll use super glue to try to keep the excess skin closed and around until I can grow the callous back.
So, any tips or tricks from tb folks?
oh, pic of the damage:
