how to get a toe nail to grow back

I smashed my second toe a couple of years ago and it spit the nail into but it never came off, there is tissue growing in the middle of my toe. Is there any chance or way I can get my nail looking normal again?

Re: how to get a toe nail to grow back

If the nail did not properly heal within 6 months, it will always be the way it is now. YOu more than likely split or damaged the matrix where the nail plate cells are developed. The tissue sticking up between the split is actually the skin of the nail bed. What you have now, you will always have because the matrix did not heal properly.
