My Toenail Completely Fell Off Because I Hit It.?
my toenails fell off. then the blood was still dripping even though it had been six hours. drip about two minutes one drop. is it okay?
Loose nails can come off on their own due to injury / impact, it can also be done intentionally by a doctor to extract / remove the nails, for example partially loose nails, infected with fungi, or ferns / nails growing inside causing complaints of pain and swelling.
Did you see a doctor after removing your nails? Did the nail come off all the way to the nail bed? Even though the bleeding has stopped, I still recommend that you check with your doctor first so you can check the condition of your nails directly. The next treatment will be adjusted by the doctor to the condition of your nails.
Your doctor may clean the wound, clean the nail bed, remove any remaining nails if necessary, sew up the wound if necessary, and teach you how to care for the wound at home. This initial treatment is important to stop bleeding, prevent infection, and maintain proper nail growth.
Meanwhile, after being treated for wounds, doctors usually recommend returning control for 3-5 days to change the bandages. However, if before the scheduled wet or dirty bandage control, you can treat the wound and change the bandage at home, do the following:
Wash hands with soap before treating wounds
Remove the bandage, if the bandage sticks, moisten the bandage with NaCl infused liquid until it is softer and remove the bandage slowly.
Clean the wound with NaCl then dry with a sterile gauze
Apply the ointment given by the doctor
Cover the wound with sterile gauze
Keep the bandage / gauze not wet and not dirty
There is no need to abstain from food unless there is a food allergy and consume more high protein foods to support recovery
