nail separated from bed - when will it grow back?
I had been getting acrylic nails but I developed an allergy -- itching and flaky skin that lasted 2-3 days every time I had a fill-in. The last time I had a fill-in, my thumb became infected. My md gave me keflex and about 5 days later, it began to drain from under the nail. I noticed that the nail was completely separated from the bed and I cut it off so it wouldn't pull off on its own. It has been one month since the fill-in & I don't see any growth on my thumb. Will it ever grow back? Is there any medical treatment that will help it grow back?
