Big Toe Gone... helppppp


I have had an issue for a long time with my big toe nails. I play sports and after taking some abuse they both have turned yellow in the past, fallen off, and have regrown only to turn yellow, purple, whatever color. The reason for this post is that one of the nails became really thick and raised from the toenail bed, so I got some clippers and start cutting and cutting, well the nail was totally dead and long story short my nail is completely gone now on one tow. Will this nail ever grow back? Does it all depend on the health of the area from where the nail grows? Should I worry about infection?

Please let me know if you have any information.

Re: Big Toe Gone...helppppp

It sounds like you might have had a fungal nail infection. The nail probably will grow back eventually, but if you paint the nailbed with the right sort of antifungals, it could grow back healthy rather than thick and yellow.
