Hello Mery lim,
Dislodged nails can occur due to several causes such as trauma to the nails, nail infections either due to bacteria or fungi or other causes such as certain health problems. The nails that can come off can also be caused by the action of nail extraction which is done on the indication of handling some of the causes mentioned.
After the nail is removed there will be open skin tissue, the open skin tissue needs to be kept clean so that it helps the healing process and the growth of the nail back where the healing process of the tissue itself will last for several days to weeks and new nail growth will appear within a few months forward.
The discharge from the tissue can be caused by several possibilities starting from the treatment given such as antiseptic fluid, ointment, or also the body's reaction to wound healing or it can also be caused by an infection. Signs of infection that need to be watched are such as pain in the area of the nails that are loose, swollen, reddish, changes in ability to move, fever and pus or fluid from the wound. For that reason, wound care needs to be done periodically starting from keeping the wound clean and dry, changing the bandage periodically, using antibiotic ointment or other medications given by doctors to be taken as recommended.
Change the bandage every day using a bandage or sterile gauze and avoid using cotton so that the fiber and cotton does not stick to the wound, apply antibiotic ointment and cover again using sterile gauze. If you find it difficult, you can do regular wound care at the nearest health facility while evaluating the treatment that has been given.
