Handling Of Wound After Removing Nails?
, 3 weeks ago my nail was removed, now it’s still in a bandage, can it be removed forever and is it allowed to get water? Please answer
Thank you for the question.
Nail extraction surgery can be done for a variety of purposes, for example in cases of paronychia, post-injury around the nail, and so on. With it revoked, it is hoped that dangerous complications, such as infection, can be prevented. Not only that, by pulling out, it is also hoped that healthier nails will later grow to replace damaged nails.
After being revoked, the doctor will generally give a special drug to the former location of the tooth extraction, then cover it with a bandage for a few moments. Furthermore, you will be invited to control 3 to 7 days later to be evaluated as to what is the condition of your fingers after their nails are pulled. Have you taken this control?
After 3 weeks, the bandage covering the nail extraction site has naturally been removed, or it just pulled off. So, not left forever. Worried, the bandages that have been dirty can actually make you experience an infection, and can also prevent the growth of new nails.
Our advice, you check yourself back to the doctor or surgeon so that the condition of your finger that has been pulled out nails can be treated properly, as long as the nail extract is no longer showing symptoms of inflammation (such as pain, swelling, runny water, suppurating, bleeding ), it doesn't matter if the nail extract is exposed to water.
Hope this helps ...
