Ripped Off Toenail Treatment
Bandaid and topical: The best treatment would be to get the wound assessed by a doctor. With that said if the there are no lacerations in the nail bed and the rest of the nail is attached firmly, no treatment would be necessary except for maybe a bandaid with topical antibiotic cream for a few days. If the nail is loose it may need to be taken off by a doctor or it may fall off on its own soon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Nail regrowth: As long as the nailbed has not been damaged or removed, nails should regrow with time (lots of time). Sometimes the new growth is characterized by discoloration or distortion, and this is usually permanent. Occlusion of the exposed nailbed with artificial nails and chemicals may further damage the nailbed and inhibit any new growth that might occur. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Damaged nail: After you damage your nail, you have to be careful of ingrown toenails and weakly growing nails. Try to take an oral compound of zinc with biotin to help with the nail growth. Also apply a small amount of a topical antibiotic around the cuticle to help prevent an infection. See a podiatrist for treatment. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Don't worry.: Toenails very commonly fall off, sometimes due to fungus, sometimes due to trauma. If your toenail grows back (it usually does but not always), have a doctor take a sample and send it to a lab for identification. If it's a fungus, your doctor can help with treatment options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It can.: Any time you stress out a toenail with surgery or even a small in-office procedure, there's a small risk of the nail falling off completely. Nails don't tend to take a joke very well, and if they're angry enough after a nail procedure, they may just give up and start over. (this is a very rare occurrence, though.). ...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
