Is The Drug Suitable For Post-nail Extraction?
When I pulled out my nails on Tuesday and I wasn’t given any ointments for further treatment, can I use bufacetin ointment?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nail extraction procedures or nail extraction may be needed for various reasons, but certainly there is damage to the nail layer which to be healed as usual, the nail must be removed, it can be partially or completely depending on the severity.
After nail removal, the doctor will usually give you a drinking medication that works to suppress inflammation, kill potential bacteria, and pain relief. The doctor will also usually ask you to routinely control and change the bandage if it is bandaged. Regarding the ointment itself, as you have asked, it is not always given, especially if there is no indication that it is given, such as wounds that tend to be babies or the unavailability of drugs. But you don't need to worry because the drugs you take can have the same effect.
Then about the ointment you mentioned, it contains generic chloramphenicol and is one of the antibiotic class drugs. It is also a strong drug so you should not buy and use it without a doctor's prescription. Do not do self-medication, especially those involving antibiotics. If you feel that your doctor's treatment is lacking, then convey your complaint during control and ask the reason why you were not given the medicine that you think should be given. If you have not scheduled control, then it is okay to keep coming in at any time with the aim of handling clarification.
Meanwhile, reduce the activity of the part of the body where the loose nails are located, try to keep the wound dry, consume the drugs that are given regularly, increase the consumption of protein-rich foods such as milk, eggs, cheese, yogurt, meat, tempeh and tofu, and once again we reminded not to do self-medication without doctor's advice first. Get well soon.
