8 month old got debris from hardwood flooring - not actually wood but hardened top coat- lodged between nail and nail bed. Attempt to remove from dr who used nail bed raiser just pushed it further. Can I just let it grow out? No pain.

Options. One option may be letting it work its way out if there is no infection., The other is to have it surgically removed by creating a small V in the nail and directly removing it in an exposed position.. Forceps have a tendency to advance foreign bodies. Keep the area clean and make sure immunizations are current. All the best.
