Ack! I think my toenail is falling off! Help!
rockpaperspock posted:
My toenail of my left big toe is starting to lift. It's coming up from the side though, not the tip. I haven't dropping anything on it or stubbed it, there is no discoloration of the skin or nail. It's just not attached to the nail bed anymore. It's about 1/3rd of the nail now. Any ideas on what might have caused this and what I can do for it?
rockpaperspock responded:
I should also add that I don't wear nail polish or get manicures either.
