If you suffer from the infliction that I'm about to address, this will be the best information you ever received.
Those extremely painful little cuts or cracks on the tips of fingers and thumbs take forever to heal. If you use super glue to hold the skin together while they are healing you will receive instant relief from pain. You just need a little drop. Be careful that you don't glue your fingers together. I buy three tubes of super glue in a package at the dollar store for, you guessed it, a dollar.
If that doesn't work, take an aspirin and call me in the morning.
