Default What to do with a torn callous

Tore a callous on my hand for the first time today. The skin is still intact but is open underneath. Should I remove the skin or just glue it back down and hope it heals that way?

The last time I tore I let it go. Then I deadlifting and it ripped the callous off almost down to the palm. I'm not sure if I should have glued or trimmed. So I have no answer, but suspect I should have trimmed and given it a week to heal.

I tore one on each hand recently, but luckily they weren't too deep, so I cut them off. Did you get any bleeding?

I've tried gluing them down and it didn't help at all. My suggestion is to trim it.

I have had some nasty ones before. Cut it off and give it a week or two and you will be good.

I usually soak the hands and then scrape away any skin that shows up as white (dead) with a scissor blade head at 45 degrees to the callous; it seems to work and I haven't had any tears to deal with.

From what I've read about tears, the general consensus is to remove the skin and trim it back, then cover it to promote healing. Some sites suggest antibacterial cream etc. I'll let you search for vids...some of them use scissors at really worrying angles and I wouldn't want to be the person that had you push a scissor blade through your palm
