Why does the skin around my cut turn white?
I have this small, but really, really deep cut on my hand. the skin around the cut is starting to turn white. Is this because the skin is dying?

the white around the cut could be a sign of infection!!
If it is you need to bathe it with some hot salty water (as hot as you can stand it!) or saline and keep it covered to prevent any more infection.
It's hard to pass judgment as I cant see it and i don't know how old the injury is.
But if you get any symptoms of infection such as a fever or, heat or redness at the sight you need to seek medical attention! Because a simple cut could have become a much more serious problem!!

Then again it could just be dead skin???


First Responder P. Roulette
the other guy is dumb... don't even bother reading what he has to say... The skin around your cut is white because the skin itself was disattached from your body. Either from the cut, or your body is shedding the broken skin off. In a way, you could simply cut the skin off, but I wouldn't suggest it. Another reason why is because it is new skin. Because you are tanned, new skin doesn't pop out new and tanned, that is why the skin is white. Eventually through time, your skin will smooth out and have a small scar, but your skin tone does not 100% even out.

If you got your shots, you dont have to worry about a small cut infecting you for that is nearly impossible. If it was a bit cut, like someone stabbed you with a kitchen knife, THEN that is something to worry about.
