Spoiler: Click at own risk wondering if anyone has damaged their cuticle? I smashed the cuticle on my middle finger, left hand about 7-8 weeks ago. It was jammed on a hard plastic handle of a cab. The nail bed looked kinda purple and it was mildly sore for a couple of weeks. The nail grew out with a scab which fell away leaving this ugly trough. Basic question: will it grow back? Bonus points: should I do anything to help it heal?
