bruised toenail

My big toenail has had a bruise on it for about 6 weeks. It doesn't hurt, but the nail isn't growing, either. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Re: bruised toenail

My big toenail had a major bruise like that about a year ago. Then most of the nail fell off two or three months later. I never did anything about it. Don't know if I should have. But it is growing back. I have about 2/3 of a toenail now.

Re: bruised toenail

It's quite possibly a fungal infection. I would suggest getting it checked out and obtain the proper medication incase that's what it is. Hopefully, it won't be a life-long thing as some people have.

It's all a matter of perspective!
