Good Morning Folks I hope you're all well. A few weeks ago I banged my foot's big toe nail which resulted in the nail becoming bruised and the nail turned a reddish colour. I went to the hospital and the doctor advised that I wrap a bandage around the nail in order to protect it, and that it should eventually heal. Does someone know if there is a special name given to this type of bandage? Thank you

I think it’s just a regular bandage

You can get toe protectors in chemists; they are made of sponge or silicon and just slide on to your toe. You can use a normal bandage, but it might get a bit bulky wrapping enough round to protect it. Depends if you just want to stop the nail lifting or just cushion it.

Many thanks for your suggestion. I only want to cushion my toe and protect it from banging into something.

If you use a bandage, put a piece of lint-free dressing round your toe first. If the nail does start to lift, it will save you catching the corners when you take the bandage off.
