Hello. I cut a part of my palm (wound is as large as a dime, maybe slightly larger). There is skin hanging off. Should i cut it off or leave it on?

In brief: LEAVE IT ALONE

Place the flap on the wound ("close it") and cover with dry dressing! See your Family Physician or Primary Care Provider for evaluation.
INFECTION in that are can be SERIOUS! Hope this helps Dr Z
