My finger has just healed from a carpet laying injury over Xmas. I'm told cuts in the finger pad usually heal pretty well and that's been the case with me.

Not long ago I sliced the finger pad of my ring finger on the fretting hand. Really annoying. Luckily, it just sliced into the callus without drawing any blood (yea, calluses!), but it made a kind of "flap" that the strings could catch and pull on. I super glued that sucker down, nail filed it as smooth as I could, and touched it up with more glue and filing when necessary. Healed perfectly.
