Is it realistic to ask doc for local anasthesia prior to removal of dressing 1 week post nail avulsion and biopsy?

Soaking. In water mixed with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide is a good way to get a finger dressing off if stuck, most surgeons use a non stick gauze either vaseline i'm orientated or a yellow guaze called xeroform so the dressing isn't typically stuck.
Not really. The injections of local anesthesia will me more painful than the dressing removal.
