Re: losing a fingernail
I would go see your dermatologist. Discoloration in the nail plate may signify a Pseudomonas bacterial infection. Boiling it out with peroxide is a good idea, but the bandaid isn't. Bandaids will keep the area 'wet' and you need to dry it out. The peroxide will help keep it dry and allow it to heal.
