A. Hi. If wound is not deep no need to cover it, open care helps in faster recovery,while going out to play use band aid

A. can i apply simple band- aid to him...as he is doing normal activities i dont think so there is fracture..it has becine more than 30 hours. he may get hurt again at the same place so applying gauze dressing is difficult can we apply band-aid or some other suggestions which are easy to apply are welcomed.

A. If the baby is fine and holding things with the hand then nothing to worry. Avoid dressing now if the injury is minor. Just apply betadine ointment. But make sure the baby don't put his hand in mouth.

A. Hi the ointment is ok , if the injury is bad it can cause crush injuries to the bone only an x Ray will tell us if bone is involved or it’s normal.

A. Hi, no need of dressing if it is a minor injury, leave it open, clean with antiseptic lotion and apply antibiotics ointment. For Pain give paracetamol. Need an x ray if it is bad injury to rule out fracture.
ExpertDr Bandana JoshiAyurvedic Physician
A. It will take sometime to recover, jyst check if the nail is intact with nail bed or came out. You should go for dressing.it will take time to recover around one to two weeks as you are saying the colour nail turns black.
