Loose nail...: I can't be sure, but it sounds as though the nail is loosely attached to the bed or not attached at all. To remove all doubt, have your toe evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more
Dry blood: Hopefully just dry blood. If that is the case the little spot should grow out as the nail grows. Keep in mind it takes an average of nine months for the nail to grow from the base to the tip so it will take a long time. In extraordinarily rare circumstances it could be skin cancer. If so, it will not grow out with the nail. So watch to see if it is moving ou with the nail as the nail grows. ...Read more

Ingrown nail: Possibly. If there is tenderness on the side of the nail, and the skin on that side is thickening, the most likely cause is an ingrown toenail. I would see your Dr or a podiatrist to be sure, because they can become very painful if infected! Good luck! (Sometimes soaking the foot in warm Epson saltwater helps!) ...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

Many things: If the pain is at the proximal nail fold (skin at the base of the nail plate), you could have an infection, especially if it is red or draining. If the pain is further back near the joint, you could have a hyperextension injury or compensation, causing pain during walking or running. If this is the case, try a stiffer shoe, avoid barefeet, flip-flops or flexible shoes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
