  2. Yes your nail will grow back. Normal toenail growth takes 1 year to go from start to finish. When the nail has been injured, it grows faster, so it might be something like 9 months. Once the nail bed has dried out and the skin has toughened, the area should not be too uncomfortable. Until then keep it covered with a bandaid.
