Nails that are loose either due to trauma or due to certain medical measures will have the effect of bleeding on the patient's nails. On loose nails, these nail pads help form a new layer of nail growth from the nail root or matrix of the nail completely until the next 2-3 months. During the period of nail growth, the nail bed must be treated properly with an antiseptic and prevent germ contamination from affecting nail growth, so that the aesthetic growth of the nail remains good.
The doctor will provide care to patients with loose nails such as wound care, and antibiotics and pain relief during the initial treatment of the wound on the loose nails.
In connection with your question, the presence of clotted blood clinging to the nail bed is a side effect of nails that are released due to trauma or because of this medical procedure. clotting of frozen blood in the nail bed is useful for stopping bleeding and preventing the entry of bacteria into the injured nail blood. In general, blood clots are usually treated by a doctor or treated independently so that they are not too thick and describe the treatment of a wound that works well. Thus, this blood clot in your nails does not cause interference with your nail growth, because this is the process of restoring your nail growth.
All you can do is take control back to the doctor who treated you after the previous nail removal procedure. Usually the doctor recommends for control on the 3rd or 4th day after the action, this is needed to evaluate the recovery process that you live is appropriate or not. If the process goes well, then the doctor provides education on continued treatment of the wound to the nail until healed. Treatment will be given according to the examination results obtained.
For now, you should avoid water contact with your wound and you should treat this nail wound every day or according to your doctor's advice.
