Can I Go Swimming After Ingrown Toenail Surgery?

You can go swimming 24 hours after having an ingrown toenail removed.  Just remove the bandage from surgery soak/apply Amerigel and put on a small peice of gauze and a Band-aid.  Then go swimming as usual, pools and lakes are just fine.  You may want to wear water shoes for added protection.  Be sure to soak/apply Amerigel and fresh gauze and Band-aid promptly after swimming.
