Toe Nail Coming Unattached

I had an in-grown toenail removed @ 10 years ago. Since then the toenail has never completely re-attached at the very tip. Now however it is barely attached at all, there is maybe 1/8" attached at the bottom of the nail. What would cause this? Should I cut the nail down to where it is attached & let it grow back?

Dear Anon 43150,

Without being to make a direct observation myself, it is not possible to give you medical advice on this forum. I suggest that you see your primary care physician for advice.

Best,

Dr. Evans
