big toe nail broke off, pleasse help

hello my big toe nail on left foot completely snapped about a week ago, it was dangling so just pulled it off. theres still a very small piece of nail on lower right side of toe, should i cut it out or file it or leave it alone? is there nething i should do to make sure it grows out straight? Also is it ok to go to the beach now or will that risk infection or nething?thnks

Re: big toe nail broke off, pleasse help

Last winter something fell on my big toe and caused my toe nail to fall off. 6 almost 7 months later it looks completely normal. I wouldn't cut it right now or you could puncture the skin then your chance for infection goes up. The only other thing that I loved doing was I got a foot bath and I would soak them every night - gave me an excuse to do a little pampering to myself, I would have to wait til the kids went to bed otherwise the girls would want to do it as well and they would just make a mess - they are only 5 (identical twins).
