Re: Partial Toe Nail Removal

Take a couple of Advil for the pain and try to wear sandals that do not put any pressure on the nail. Keep it clean and apply antibacterial ointment to the effected area. It will not look good for a while, but the matrix will continue to produce new nail plate cells that will grow forward and push the damaged portion off the free edge.
