I would say to avoid infection, just clean and rewrap often.
Dr. Oz?

So cleaning.. neosporin, then bandaid? Alright then!

Yes, Dr. Oz. I'm no expert, but that's what he said.

I think it looks a lot better. So, you've got both sides of advice-wrap & don't wrap. It can be confusing to know which way to go. Hoping it heals fast & you feel better soon.

I know right? Haha

I've decided to wrap for night time and leave it open during the day time. 50/50 with neosporin on both times.

It doesn't even look that bad anymore :) And I'm getting the feeling back in it! Woo!

Here's an updated pic. It's going to heal ugly eitherway haha

Wow that's a long recovery time!

Mine looks to be healing fast on the surface but I am reluctant to try and clean my thumb nail or trim it.. doesn't look too secure.

Did you rip the nail off? I didnt' catch that. My son once ripped his big toe nail off when he pulled open a heavy door and it just caught the nail and ripped it totally off. Very gross and very painful.

Well he cracked my nail at the cuticle soo its had to grow out, which its so ugly lookin haha. Nothing hanging off now but have the ugly bump and akward looking nail haha. Its grown out enough though that I can get acrylics put on which I wish I had when he bit me as he wouldn't of made it through those suckers as easily :] hah but yes it has been painful always had to keep a banaid on it so it didn't catch on everything.

No tinyliny he crushed my cuticle in (he's got quite the jaw), it's not attached on the left side and some of the bottom. I was very lucky not to have a worse outcome.

Ouch barrelracingArabian!
