I have dragged the door backwards onto my foot and it has semi-ripped my toenail off halfway but is still firmly attatched. The nail has bent backward?
See a podiatrist: First I would recommend soaking in epsom salts or salt water to help clean the area and prevent infection. Then apply an antibiotic ointment and bandage. If the nail is loose it will be painful with any pressure or movement. Very often the nail needs to be removed which is a simple procedure done after local anesthesia in a podiatrist's office. Sometimes the nail plate can be reapplied. ...Read more

The problem here:
Is you need to know if the toenail became fungal or if that nail is thick for other reasons. I.e bacterial colonization or subungual keratinazation. A thick yellow stubby nail is not always fungal.
Topical meds for fungus are not highly effective either. If your inclined to try one you can but you will be applying for many months duration & 1 is not necessarily better than others. ...Read more
