Hello there. I can understand your concern. Yes, the nail surely does fall off but in severe cases. Not necessary that it falls of in each and every case. In your case the nail may not fall it will heal properly on its own and the color change will be gradual and slow. Do not try to do any of the self treatment that might be suggested on the "INTERNET" and damage it further. Just let it grown and take its own time. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.

Hello Dear, Don't worry, it is not necessary that your nail will fall off. The color however will take a lot of time to go away. It will gradually fade as the nail grows back. Don't try to fidget with the nail or don't try to cut it deep. Let it grow on its own and you will be fine.
