Mon, Jan 27 2:18pm · Toenail removal aftercare or soaking for ingrown toenails in Chronic Pain

Thank you for this info. I had my big toe nail on right foot removed. Doctor felt it best as damage to nail and nail bed was bad. I can’t tell you how many times I dropped full shampoo bottles on my toes. Anyway someone suggested using Vaseline instead of neosporin. I had this removed Jan 21st and decided to try the Vaseline Jan 26th. I woke up about 100 am in excruciating pain. I got up took off the bandage and wiped off what was left of the Vaseline And put neosporin on it and a new bandage. Still hurt but not as bad. Ended up taking Motrin to finally get some sleep before work. I didn’t soak it sat or sun so not sure if the issue was the Vaseline or the bandage too snug or not soaking. I was wondering how long I need to soak this and do I want to keep it wet like with neosporin or let it dry. When at home I remove sock and banadage and let it out in the air.
