Toe nail growth
Average toenail growth
if you find yourself clipping your toenails less frequently than your fingernails
, there's a reason--toenails grow a lot slower than fingernails, says kids health.
If you lose a toenail, it takes between 12 and 18 months for a new one to grow back out. Toenails grow at a rate of one-third to one-half of the rate of fingernails, or around 1 millimeter each month.
