Will nail fungus be all over my bed sheets, etc My ob doc say I have nail fungus But the ER doc. Says it might not be because I slammed finger w/ door
Both could be right.: Trauma to the nail root can either temporarily or permanently cause a distortion of the nail plate. This distortion can often mimic a fungal nail infection. Having a fingernail that has a fungal infection is not as common as a toenail, especially on a 23 year old. You can settle the dilemma by having the nail tested for fungal spores. ...Read more
Before I jammed my finger from a car door and I'm not sure my nail will come back to normal, because I still see a little blood under the nail.
Don't worry. It will:
When you jamm your nail or get it injured, the nail will slowly become loose and eventually come out.
But worry not, the new one is already in the making and slowly it will replace the otherwise dead nail. The blood that you are seeing inside the nail may need to come out, if it is causing pain. Otherwise the nail will be replaced by a new one in due course of time. ...Read more

Sure: Covering the nailbed with a band-aid will not affect eventual regrowth one way or another. The only way it won't regrow is if you damaged the deep cuticle, and a traumatic avulsion rarely does that. So keep the wounded nailbed clean and if you want to, you can use a covering such as a band-aid without fear of further harm. By the way, ouch! ...Read more
