Treatment For Sores On Loose Nails?
The thumb was pinched by a standard motorbike and was released halfway until the effect was dizzy and vomited as if he was going to faint. Finally, he was taken to the health center to be completely removed and treated and then bandaged? But forget how to handle it, do you have to take the bandage off every day (very painful and painful) and give Betadine and then ointment and then Tulle and bandage again? ?rnrnThanks
Injury to the nail can cause partial or complete loss of the nail. If part of it is removed, it is recommended that it be completely removed so that the nail growth will return to good. After a special procedure of removing the nail under local anesthesia, the nail will be given an antiseptic solution and covered with a sterile bandage. This bandage should be changed every day or at least every 2 days to prevent infection. Every time you change the bandage, clean the nail with 0.9% NaCl (infusion), rub gently, then apply antiseptic solution while closing it again with a new bandage. For drugs, especially antibiotics and anti-pain from the doctor, keep taking as recommended. Amoxicillin is known to be safe enough to be consumed safely during breastfeeding. For mefenamic acid its use is very limited when breastfeeding unless there is a doctor's permission.
During treatment also pay attention to whether there are signs of infection. Swelling, redness, and pus are some signs of infection to watch out for. If you find this condition immediately see a doctor for further treatment. Generally healing and nail growth lasts for 1-3 months.
