My Toenail Ripped Off I Put On A Bandage How Long Before It Grows Back
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
Ouch !!: I am not sure if your toenail was traumatically torn from your toe, as traumatic avulsion, of it simply fell off, as if it was loose already. A nail injury is treated in the same way as other injuries. Clean the wound, apply sterile dressing, control the bleeding and monitor. The nail should grow back in 9 months to a year, providing the root was not stunted. If it just fell off, 6-9 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

I got ingrown toe nail surgery 2.5 wks ago. Can I put on nail polish? It only gets slightly white when I put on the hydrogen peroxide now.
Ingrown toenail : I would avoid the nail polish until your doctor sees you back and clears you for such things. Also, as an aside, hydrogen peroxide can be quite caustic to healing tissue. I would advise only using it on a new dirty wound but not something that is in a healing phase. Please call the doctor that operated on the ingrown toenail to advise you on what to use as a day-to-day dressing. Good luck! ...Read more
