Big toe nail fell off

A few weeks a ago, a baseball struck my big toe.
The nail finally came off, buit now there is a large gap behind the nail bed and I’m worried my toe can be come eaisily infected. Will the gap grow back to its original state once the nail grows back? Will I have to wear sandals for the next year? How should I care for my toe while it’s healing?

  1. My Left toe nail fell off. I already had naik fongus.WHAYT HAPPENS NOW?? WHERE SHOULD I GO ?HOSPITAL OR PODIATRIST?IT’S STILL ATTACHED TO BOTTOM NAIL BED.PLEASE HELP .

  2. I could probably tell youalot more if I saw your foot. SInce I have not , then in general, if the nail root is not damaged, then a new nail will grow. If it was damaged, then it could grow back deformed. Really, time will tell. Right now you should protect it by keeping it covered until it quits hurting. Good luck.
