I Stubbed My Big Toe And Most Of The Nail Peeled Off I Put A Bandaid To Keep The Nail On
I stubbed my big toe and most of the nail peeled off, I put a bandaid to keep the nail on. Hurts a lot, what should I do? See a dr?
Hi doc, I have a small wound on the side of my big toe next to the nail that will not heal. I cover it with neosporin and a bandaid twice a day.
Start Now, not later: Normally, small open wounds are not a problem, but when they will not heal, then you must take action. These small wounds, given time, can become large, troublesome wounds. Some potential concerns are blood supply to the toe, history of diabetes, infection and irritation of the wound. More than likely, this problem ends when these concerns are investigated, identified and corrected by a doctor. ...Read more
My big toe nail fell off from me stubbing my toe going on two months now looks like a new one growing is there anything I should put on it like cream?
I have pain ontop of my big toe. It looks completely normal and I am positive that I do not have an ingrown nail. When i put pressure on it, it hurts.
If indeed you are : Correct there is no ingrown toenail other possibilities could include a subungual exostosis or a bone spur under the toenail, an enchondroma or similiar type of bony lesion. Make sure shoes are proper fit and you werent wearing anyone too tight. An xray would be a good starting point. ...Read more
How do i get my toe nail to grow again after a surgery i had on my big toe? And is it safe to put on a fake nail till it grows completely?
Waiting Game.: Rather difficult to say, without knowing the nature of the toe surgery performed. Surgery on your nail may have permanently stunted your nail, by design. It could also be temporarily stunted, in which case, only time will tell. Applying fake nails without knowing the details does not sound good. These details are often discussed before the surgery is performed. Ask your surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

See podiatrist: If you can keep the nail plate attached as long as possible, it will protect the nail bed and eventually a new nail will grow out and push the broken part out. If it breaks off or is symptomatic, see a podiatrist or dermatologist to remove the broken portion and for a possible prescription to protect the new nail from a fungal infection while it is growing out. ...Read more
Stubbed my big toe a week ago. It bruised and today the nail fell off. Anything special I should do?
Not Much.: That must have been one heck of a stub. But no matter, clean it up and you're good to go. Be aware that, most of the time, the new nail will be as normal as the old nail. Occasionally, if the nail root was damaged by the "stub", the new nail may show some degree of distortion. The new nail may appear thicker, thinner, split or even wavy. These changes may be only temporary, but could be permanent. ...Read more
I have a cut on the bottom of my foot, i put a bandaid on it. Later that day i took off the bandaid. I see that there is a big red itchy spot.
Adhesive reaction: If the shape of the red, itchy spot is close to the shape of the bandaide, then this is most likely an allergic reaction to the adhesive. If you applied an ointment to the cut, it could also be a reaction to that as well. Unless your cut was dirty and not cleansed well, it is less likely to be infection developing that quickly. Blister bandages use a different adhesive and could work well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
