Big toe nail not growing
I don't know how long it's been, possibly a month or two, since I noticed. I thought about asking at a clinic right away, but after a day or two, I wasn't sure if I'd look stupid for asking about something like this (I've ran over to ask them about a lot of other little things in the past and I know I'm a little too quick to worry).
When I first noticed it, my right big toe's nail appeared to be recently cut, while my left toe's nail (and the other ones) had grown out quite a bit (and I knew I hadn't cut them for awhile). I cut my other toenails that day, but the nails are starting to grow back now, except for this one. Before I noticed it, there was maybe a week or two where I noticed that the skin around the base of the toe was a little sore when I pushed on it, especially on the outer corner. I didn't think much of it, but after I noticed the toenail hadn't grown, I looked at it a little more closely. For all my other nails, where the skin and the nail meets, there's a thin layer of skin over the nail, but that's missing from my toe, and the skin next to the nail looks slightly humped. But the white part of the toe at the base of the nail still looks normal.
Also, at the top of the nail, there's a slightly lighter area (possibly slightly yellowish), about a fifth of an inch long. The coloration isn't very noticeable, but I can see a line that runs across the toenail in the shape of the nail, separating the two colors.
I wonder if the toenail could've gotten shoved into the skin or something, but that's probably not possible... especially since I'd think I would've felt something like that... Will the toe look normal again eventually?
