yesterday i noticed that the nail on my pinky toe was kind of moving, so i left it alone. today i discovered that not only had the nail broken off but the nail on my other foot was doing the same exact thing. there is no sign of fungus and it was not subject to any type of injury. also the base of the nail is still there, just the tip has ripped off. i was wondering if it is possible that if the nail was too long for the toe it could have caught to something, like my sock, and ripped the tip of the nail off? also i'd like some advice on how to take care of it so i can allow the nail to grow again. thank you!
It is very possible it caught on something and broke. Just allow it to grow out, then invest in a 25$ pedicure. it will make your toes sparkle, and make you feel good as well.
Go to a doctor and get checked to see if you have a condition that needs treatment.
Almost certainly it got caught on something and got ripped. it happens. the good news is toenails grow back. I had one "smashed off" with someone's heel in a martial arts fight, it took 8 weeks to grow back but it did, they are pretty tough things.
While it's not true that eating vitamins will make it grow quicker, it WILL grow slower if you don't eat properly and therefore get enough vitamins and nutrients.
