I cut myself while mincing parsley last night (I know ~ duh!). Fortunately my knife is really sharp, so it was a clean cut, but unfortunately, it was a substantial cut, going through my fingernail. I took off approximately 1/4 of the top right portion of my fingernail and the flesh underneath, which remained behind on my knife. Sorry to be gross, but here's why I need advice . . . Obviously, this will be an "open" wound for a little while, and since I work in a kitchen, I could use some advice on protecting it so it heals well. Also, I'm hoping my nail isn't deformed when it grows back. Any advice would be much appreciated!
