A culture of the: Nail would be positive if there was a fungus in the nail. Cultures are fairly accurate, but not 100%. There are several reasons a toenail would just fall off, but a fungal infection is not high up on the list. You can put the nail under your pillow before you go to sleep and the toenail fairy will leave you a dollar. It's also a good idea to see a podiatrist! good luck!
