Don't cut them until they are completely dead and dry! It is only doing more harm to stress it when it is already stressed. Just let it recover before you do anything else to it. ESPECIALLY don't cut new leaves. This is extraordinarily harmful to the plant.

It is going to look quite ugly until it recovers, but anything that you try and do now will hurt it.
IF you feel that you must try and help it, the only thing that I would recommend is Thrive Alive B1. Red is Chemical, and Green is organic. Both are Wonderful for plant stress.
