what is the best way to remove a cloth bandage put on by a podiatrist after being placed on the toenail after its removal from the doctor.?

It is sticking to the blood on the toe. I dont want to cause more problems to the toe or for it to tear the skin.

    I violently ripped a toenail of running up some stairs and this happened EVERY TIME I changed the baggage. Soak it in warm water and epsom salts and work it little by little. At some point you'll have to grit your teeth and yank it off, but it sticks less and less each time

    You need to wet the bandage first, and wait a little while until it is loose enough to remove.

    Try soaking it in warm water first. Allow it to dry before redressing it.
