Ripped Toenail Off

I banged my big toenail into the step when walking up the stairs and it came almost all the way off! I went to the hospital and the doctor froze it and removed the toenail completely. Now that the freezing has worn off, it stings continuously, as a fingernail does when it's cut to the quick. Is there any topical cream or something I can put on it to numb it? Also, how long should I keep the bandage on before I dress it again?

Thanks for any suggestions

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
