Will my toe nail grow back?


I stumped my middle toe on a brick about a month ago and it hurt for the longest time it got all swallon and stuff but now all thats gone and my nail is starting to fall off. Its still connected on one corner to my skin but the other side isn’t. So what should i do should i leave it alone or should i cut the lose part off, will it grow back? Help please!!!


  1. When a damaged nail is pushed off by a new nail, it usually does not come off cleanly. If there is a loose edge, you can trim it back or file it off. A new nail is underneath. It will take a while before it is totally regrown.
