Here Is the Reason Why a Paper Cut Hurts so Much for Such a Small Wound

If you’ve ever wondered why these small and shallow wounds hurt so much, well, wonder no more.


Science explains that paper cuts are more than meets the eye. Even if a thin sheet of paper may appear clean enough to slice through skin, that is not the case. It has jagged edges that can cut through skin like a saw and leaves chemical-coated particles, which can irritate a wound.

A paper cut can also leave a shallow wound. This doesn’t allow blood to clot and only exposes neurons that heighten the pain. And since it’s a body part we use often, the wound garners more attention than any place else.
