Who would’ve thought that a hangnail could land someone in the hospital? And in the operating theatre, no less.
On Wednesday (Feb 24), Hongkong actress Sheren Tang posted a dire warning to her followers about dealing with those pesky pieces of torn skin: “Never try to pull it out or bite it off with your teeth. Instead, you should use disinfected nail clippers to carefully trim it off.”
She is speaking from experience, by the way. The 54-year-old had apparently done exactly what she said not to do with a hangnail, resulting in an infection and swelling that was so bad, she needed to go for surgery.
