Try lip balm to ease the pain of a paper cut.
The tiniest cuts of paper cuts seem to produce way too much pain for their size. Try putting some lip balm over a small paper cut.
Paper cuts may not bleed much, which is not a good thing here. Bleeding forms a blood clot to heal the wound. Without blood, the wound is open to irritation and pain. The wax base of lip balm can help seal the wound and protect it from exposure to air, lessening pain.
