    Toe nail gone black after acrylic toenail help!!

    Hi all
    This is gross and i dont know what i should do..

    A few years ago i have an ingrown big toe nail..

    Always grew slow and snapped off after being completely removed
    Anyway, having pedicure i asked nail to do acrylic on it to
    Stop it snapping and grow longer.

    I had it put on in about sept 2013.. Had it replaced maybe dec 13..

    And thought.. Ill just let it grow out now..

    Recently, my daughter stood on my toe and it snapped off..
    All underneath was black like it rotted my nail..
    So now im left with maybe half centimetre of nail on big toe
    And the edge is black..

    Any suggestions??
    Ive just bought an anti fungal nail pen to see but any advise would be great..

    Thanks

    Black under the nail can be a bruise or a fungal infection. If fungal, nail will usually be thick, ridged or bumpy and sometimes have lots of debris underneath. I would leave the artificial nail off, keep toes dry, trim off any length as it grows, and use of the antifungal is fine. Some infections if extensive require systemic antifungal meds to clear up. They are expensive and have to be taken for months while the nail grows out. Hopefully, it will clear up without that. Be sure to trim that nail last and then wash your clipper or scissors so you don't transfer the fungus to another nail.
