Innermost nail of foot
Hi, I hurt my innermost nail of the left foot when I accidentally banged it into a desk. It has become a bit loose with slight blood clot. Do I need to do anything significant or will it over time become hard fixed as before?

Hello there...I can understand your concern. it would have been better if you had posted a photo of the lesion. if the injury was recent, then there will be some inflammation. it will take time to reduce. also once the nail has been detached or cut, it won't get attached back. you will have to wait for the new nail to grow. without the photo it is very difficult to analyse. so kindly consult a general surgeon for further evaluation.
