Right Hand Middle Finger Skin

6855172?1303760313
A while back I bit a little piece of skin off, that was sticking out from the tip off my middle finger. I think it ripped off too much and so I started bleeding. I put a bandage over it to stop the bleeding. When I took off the bandage after a while, there was dry blood on it so I cleaned it. It still hurt a little bit, but I noticed that the skin there was growing back very out of place. Ever since then, the skin at the tip of my finger (on the right side of my nail) has been growing peeled and it seems like  it's growing on top of each other. It makes it look like I have a bump. It stops growing after a certain point so I bite it off again to make it less noticeable. I really want my finger to look like the rest of them, just like before.....Can I get the piece of skin sliced off and maybe it'll grow back normally or more smoothly?

Hello,
This can be due to a hyperkeratotic papule or a corn or callus. Apply lots of moisturising lotion and vit E on the hands. If still the symptoms persist, then please go in for removal by surgical means or with keratolytic agents (medicines that break up hardened areas of skin). Shaving or cutting off the hardened area on the skin by a doctor is also helpful.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
