Please advise on potential causes of unexplained toenail loss. Recent surgeries on right ankle 11/02 and 9/03. Bunionectomy also performed on right big toe 11/02. Recently had right big toe get red under the toe nail, pain and release of blood and puss after podiatrist inserted instrument. Started at base of nail with discoloration and uneven skin ( ridges). Later same thing occurred on second biggest toe on LEFT foot. No trauma to feet, nothing dropped on toes, didn’t jam toes into anything.Podiatrist, Pain Dr. and Physical Therapist at a loss for explanation as to possible causes

  1. :Experienced two ingrown toenails on toes next to big toe – they are slightly longer than big toe. Then I lost both toe nails. Without any visible infection of big toe, the whole toe nail is almost completely lifted off. There is no soreness or sign of infection. Can you venture an explanation.
