injured toenail

SHARE

I kicked a soccerball barefoot (smart eh?) and hit my toenail straight on.
It hurt and it bled and it looks swollen and the nail appears to have lifted off my toe at least 1/3 of the way down the nail.
How do I care for my toe?
I feel like I should clean it but I also think I should keep it dry for awhile.
Can I go to the pool?
Take a warm bath?

  1. Until you can see a podiatrist, I recommend you keep it covered and protected with an antibiotic ointment and gauze or bandaids.
