Re: Ripped off my toenail HELP!

I would recommend you see a podiatrist. Until you do, I suggest you dress the area with a topical antibiotic such as Neosporin, as long as you are not sensitive to it. Use Telfa on the wound and then gauze over that. Tape it lightly with a hypoallergenic tape. You can mix 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and pour this over the bandage several times daily. You can change the bandage daily.
