Re: Am I going to lose my nail?
My two big toe nails fell off twice in my life! From wearing very tight ice-skates when I was a teenager, my nails were pressed so hard they bruised. One fell off, and there was a soft coated nail underneath, which eventually grew into a new nail.
It happened again with very tight sneakers recently. They were bruised from rubbing and turned black and blue, and yellow underneath. About halfway up some of the nail came off, and a soft nail was underneath, then eventually a hard nail grew in it's place. I went to the podiatrist and he said he couldn't do anything about it, just to wait till the nails grew back.
