I lost a battle with an electric paper shredder earlier this afternoon. My ring finger is pretty much okay except for perfect grooves in the fingertip that match exactly when held side by side with the blades on the shredder, but the little finger hurts like a big dog and keeps bleeding lightly off and on. The nail is split down the middle almost to the cuticle, and there's been blood around the cuticle, which didn't meet the shredder blades directly. So I'm guessing there was trauma to the cuticle when the shredder caught the corner of my nail. One side of the nail seems to be firmly intact; the other is not attached except up at the cuticle line. It's under a Bandaid now, but I'm wondering, should I try to remove the part of the nail that is pulled free or just leave it and let it fall off by itself?
Thanks, Dr Moms.
