Toe compresion wrapping

Sometimes the smaller areas require more work or orientation to detail. The 1 inch elasticized gauze I used I purchased in bulk online. You can also get it at your local pharmacy. Each gauze has about 3-6 uses before it gets gross or over stretched out. I also like to purchase 2 inch gauze and fold it “like a hot dog” to have increased compression.

If your toes turn numb, blue, or have excrutiating pain after a few minutes of movement, remove the wrap. Coverage should be at half of the bandage width.

Thank you Dr. Kayte for filming!
