Re: Fingernail Damage

My nail was growing upwards on half of the nail bed. The doctor thought the skin was hard and the new nail would not attach to it and he roughened the skin and the gauze is supposed to keep the nail bed from becoming hard again. The gauze is pretty dirty now and there is no nail in sight. Should there be nail growth after 5 weeks? Should I remove the gauze?
