We scrutinize the injured toenail to determine the extent of the injury. Look for signs of bleeding, cracked or broken nails, nail detachment, or embedded foreign objects.
If there is bleeding, we apply gentle pressure with a clean cloth or gauze to help stop the bleeding. Styptic powder or a styptic pencil, specifically formulated to stop bleeding in nails, can also be used if available. If bleeding persists or is severe, contact us for further guidance.
