New Nail Growing Back In
Four months ago my thumb was slammed in a car door. The nail became black instantly, eventually became loose and broke off from the nail bed, and subsequently pulled off by yours truly.
My new nail is about halfway grown back in, probably less, however, there is a slight problem...or at least I think. My new nail is pushing a portion of what seems to be a hardened nail bed. The hardened part is raised above my fingernail so my new nail obviously can't grow over it.
The top of my thumb is tender and red, and I think the nail may push this hardened piece of skin or w/e it is through the top of my finger. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
Should I see a doctor about maybe having this hard piece removed or is it normal?
