    So about 2-3 weeks ago, a lock dropped on my middle toe. It hurt really bad and turned black around the cuticle, on top and below.
    My brother stepped on it one day, it hurt like hell, and after about a week, when I was at the pool and looked at it. It looked like it was coming out.
    I don't know how to describe it but it looks like the cuticle just... Ripped.
    Since I was told that the matrix is under the cuticle and that's where my nail is coming off, is it possible that it won't grow back? It looks all black and stubby. I also can't avoid water because around 2-3 times a week I have a swimming class.
    I'm Really worried.
    My mom said it won't grow back.

    Re: Toenail...

    Try putting a spoonful of plain cultured yogurt in a small baggie and sliding it over your toes, covering it with a sock, and sleeping with that on at night. During the day, you can do the same for 30 minutes, using a large bag with a 50/50 white vinegar/kosher salt mixture.
