I’m filing my skin away. What can I do for this problem?

Q.

I’m filing my skin away. Is there any type of glove out on the market that I can buy for this problem? I would have to cover three fingers on my right and two on my left. They get so bad that they start to bleed. Please help me.

A.

Something I have seen a lot of nail professionals use that is easy and economical is a flex tape or wrap. It comes in a variety of colors and sizes for multiple uses and will stick to itself for easy application. You can simply wrap the finger or fingers that tend to get hit and replace the wrap as needed to protect the fingers. They can be found in medical supply, nail supply, and even veterinary supply stores or catalogs. The wraps are a good place to start, but practice of file control is an ideal add-on!
