After Care for Nail Avulsion

At the time of procedure the doctor will bandage the area. Keep the bandage on and dry for the day. You can expect some tenderness, particularly with pressure such as a tight-fitting shoe, for a day or two following the procedure. Pain can be managed with Extra Strength Tylenol.

The night following the procedure: Remove bandage, wash with soap and water, apply a small amount of antibiotic ointment with adaptic (Vaseline gauze) and regular bandaid.

Further instructions: Continue washing with soap and water two days after. Apply a dry bandaid and no ointment. Continue this for one week.
