Thank you.


I dont like plastic rollers either.


Small cuts heal by themselves and all you need to do is to keep these clean to prevent infection.


You can apply topical local anesthetic gel in order to minimize the pain. but best will be to keep it dry, take oral pain killers like motrin or alleve, and if the margins are wide or if the cut is deep, you should get it approximated by local physician as it will expedite the healing.

In case there is any redness or swelling in cut area, you must take antibiotics to prevent infection.
