I had a toenail removed on thursday, and now my dressing is stuck to wound. I have changed it and soaked it and used plenty of bacitracin. How can I get the stuck dressing off ?

Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

You can try to soak it in normal saline.

This may need to be repeated several times till the dressing gets loose.

Then it would come out.

I hope this information helps.
