#ChennaiRainsHelp Toe nail came off by own

I had suffered an injury in toe while playing football some 2.5 months ago. Blood had clotted, toe nail became black. Today, the entire nail came off on its own. Below is a hard, natural coloured skin. No pain, no sensation. Do I risk infection? Should I do anything about it? Any precautions to take?

Don't worry. Just apply Vaseline daily. A new nail grow fully over a year. Just avoid injury to the toe in the absence of a nail since nail need can be tender. If U r too anxious about the same, consult a dermatologist and take his opinion, since he can even have a look and confirm the absence of any infection. Take care.
