Q. My 5 year old has terrible hangnails. Do you have a simple remedy for this annoying condition?
A. One reader shared this: “I had a hangnail that had gotten very inflamed. A friend of mine from Iran told me to buy plain yogurt that had active culture and soak my finger in it. She said Iranians use plain yogurt for numerous things.
“I tried the yogurt and my hangnail cleared up very quickly. Maybe the probiotics in yogurt have anti-inflammatory properties.
