    certainly doesn't sound too good... what do the cuts look like? do they feel hot/are red/off colour? do you get pain anywhere else, like up your arm or anything? I suggest you keep a close eye on them, give them a good wash and cover up the cuts.. if no improvement or they get worse please see a doctor. Your health is the utmost importance.

    well they arent hot, but i feel hot inside my hands if you know what i mean...
    I dont get pain anywhere else... I hope that this is just because of too much cutting...

    One cut is one cut too many. And it could very well be a case of too much cutting... the hand is one of the most sensitive parts on our body so cuts on the hands can be painful. It depends on how many cuts and the extent, as to whether this is dangerous. Keep an eye out for signs of infection, such as swelling, redness, pus and/or fever. If the pain doesn't get any better then please get professional medical advice.

    keep em clean - i suggest antibacterial stuff...they hurt like hell but i'm hoping you dont want infections all over your hands.

    dont wear wooly gloves either

    ok thanks for help... but i can wear soft wristbands, can I?
    I made 97 cuts in last few days so i think that it is because of cutting... however, i will stop cutting myself for few days and if the pain will still be there i will ask for help, what is going to be dangerous, because of my parents...

    thanks for help everyone, i really apreciatte it...

    *hugs*

    If you have someone that you trust that you can talk to then I think you should. I was a lot like you last year and my cutting was out of control but I found a person I could trust who listened and got me into a group that helped me so much. The pain in your hands could be nerve damage from your cutting. There are many nerves in your hands and the more you cut the more of a chance of damage. I had a similar problem and was told by a doctor that over time we cut deeper and deeper to release the pain and by doing so we get into the nerves. If the pain doesn't go away you may need medication to help control the pain. Do you have numbness or tingling as well? I would start by talking to a person you trust and then look into getting medical help for your hand pain.

    Thanks for advice! The pain is much lower now and i dont feel it except when i move my arms:)
    I have few people which i trust... but if they arent like me (bipolar or cutting themselfs too) they would understand me and would maybe judgme me)

    115 cuts? of course your hands will be red and burning, the blood pressure increases to heal them!
