    If they're cut because of cold/dry weather, Working hands is great....but pricey. A close second is Gold Bond.
    If they're cut from boxes/letters and they won't heal, use clear nail polish.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    I’m afraid only tampons will help you.

    My doctor recommends super glue. Up in the north country, we carry the little bottles with the brush inside and dab it on the fingers.

    Just don’t take a leak while the glue is still wet.

    I think you mean crazyglue, crazy(krazy) glue is used in hospitals for some cuts. I wouldn't put clear nail polish on it.

    When you get cuts, seal them with super glue. They will heal faster and stop hurting immediately.

    I know what I said and I did mean clear nail polish. I've been using it for 30+ years when I get a blister while bowling.

    I been doing the super glue thing. It does help for immediate relief but usually end up opening back up after a shift. Going to try the working hands and drown my fingertips in it.

    if you know of the cause, then the fix is rather easy.

    side note... cardboard cuts are the worse... and stanly knife cuts are embarrassing (when you do it to yourself when unstrapping a pallet, or slicing a strap.)

    I use I like the tube version vs the tub, but when the stuff gets cold it's a real pain to get out of the tube. And it's definitely greasy, but less greasy than most products containing petroleum jelly. I apply this stuff, rub it in, then put my gloves on. Do that three times during the day. Works wonders. This stuff will not work with insulated gloves (felt lined). I found that if it's really cold out, I'll put it on and use my regular gloves for 20 minutes, then switch to my insulated gloves.
