Toe Nail Separated from Nail Bed
fnnierfce posted:
I have two toe nails that have separated from the nail bed, both from injury. The nails have been trimmed back as far as possible and have now grown out. I can paint the nails and mask the issue but I am concerned about any fungal issues that might happen. Is it true that the nail will never reattach? My primary care doctor wanted me to go to a specialist but I don't want to spend the money just to find out that it won't reattach no matter what is done. Keeping it trimmed back, especially the one that is basically 1/2 way, means a pretty ugly toe in sandals.
