The One Thing You Should Never Put On A Bruised Nail

If you have ever jammed your fingernail in a door or dropped something heavy on your toe, you know what it’s like to have a bruised nail and it isn’t fun. Once the blood begins to collect under your nail bed, you know that you are in for a world of hurt.

To prevent further damage to the nail, don’t cover it before soaking in an anti-bacterial wash. Covering the nail before treating it can actually create an infection within the laceration. That sounds like just about the worst place you can get an infection, buried under your nail.

If you are suffering from a bruised nail, make sure to ice the area, wash the germs away and apply a sterile bandage to the tear. It takes a while for the bruise to go away, which happens as your nail slowly grows out, but it will feet much better if you take these measures.

Don’t forget to check out the one thing you shouldn’t put on a zit and the one thing you should never put on a cold sore.
