My toenail is coming off and I didn't injure it in anyway...help?
I don't remember hurting it anyway and I think that would be something I'd feel and know about along with remember. I just got out the shower and my girlfriend was the one that noticed it. It's my middle toe and it's coming off from the part closet to where the toe is connected to the foot. It doesn't hurt(unless I pull on it---yes I was going to just pull it off) and it doesn't look infected or even injured. It looks normal besides the fact that half of the nail is sticking up.
So what should I do? Personally,I want to clip off the nail and go on with my life but my girlfriend wants me to get it checked,thoughts?
Clip it off and put bandage to prevent it from hanging up on bed sheet, or just put on a shock. If you have some antiseptics then use it to prevent the infection from developing, needed or not, batter safe then be sorry.
But keep an eye on it, if it gets black or even red or start paining, run to a Doctor.
Your girl friend is more concerned along the line of "batter be safe then be sorry". It is up to you to see a doctor now or wait. In most places you cannot see a doctor right away any way so!!!! wait.
It is very common for nail to come off like this, as some times it separates at the cuticle and new growth pushes under the old grown nail, if you pull on the old nail and it is still attached at some places then it hurts this is exactly what has happened to you. This is why one must keep the nail trimmed just passed the cuticle. If you do like it long then from now on you need to watch it for separation, as you get older it happens more often.
