i think you have to go to the hospital and get the antitetanus shots, just to be sure..

but the toenails will just grow back again...

but make sure to have the ANTITETANUS SHOTS...

I have owned and operated a nail salon for the past 34yrs.-i have seen this problem-many times. my most helpful answer is- to -go to a podiatrist pronto. you have had, problems with ingrown toenails,can be, that you are not trimming your toenails correctly,and they are,cutting into,the sides of your toes-very likely- your nails-should be cared for- properly-before,the problem- gets to the point-where-there are infections-that become ,so terrible,that,that,it enters the bone-and,then you are at a great risk for gangrene-and a possible amputation-you,don,t have to go to a hospital-but i urge you to-find as i mentioned,earlier- a specialist-in this area- remember-"an ounce of prevention,is worth more than, a lb. of cure!" take care of yourself-that is your responsibility- after all, you do- have a grandchild-who will-need you as his/or her role model-and you do want to make sure that you,are a good one-he will most likely-follow your examples-whether good,or bad! be the grown-up,that,you need to be-come on! you can do it! and,also- chances are ,that your toenails are way too long- another great factor-for problems!

sit there and suffer and likely get it infected.....or go to a doctor, the sensible choice.

Then you are stuck dealing with the pain and possible infection until you get over your silly fear or hatred of hospitals.

Well the best thing is to keep it clean and apply anibac on the exposed toe to prevent any infections and it also helps to heal faster, and put a band aid over the exposed toe or toes and make sure to take the bandage off around every 12 hours so it can breath and heal faster. your new nail should grow back within 9 months to a year. and for your ingrown toe nails you wont have that problem any more as long as you cut and trim them properly. remember this is not a medical advice this is known from my past experience, three years ago I work as a security guard at a casino in Nevada and I was on foot patrol when I tried to stop a car theft my foot was caught under the tire when they sped off, the tire had ripped off four of my toe nails and broke three of my smaller toes. My foot doctor gave me these instructions and it does help.

I don't think you need to go to the hospital. Just soak your foot in some hot water and dreft soap every day to keep it clean until the nail grows back.

I guess the always sensible choice would be to go to the hospital. However, last year I had my toenail ripped off by a big door on campus and I simply kept it nice and clean, left it open when I was in a somewhat controlled environment (my dorm, girlfriend's apartment, etc.) and just waited for a new one to grow in. A new one grew in rather quickly also. Good Luck

frogz rule!!!
just let it grow back i guess

keep the area clean dry and pressure free and exposed to air to prevent infection that breed in warm dark moist places
monitor for signs of infection such as swelling redness discharge if you have to cover it use a thin gauze dressing never a bandaid as that will keep it moist
if you are diabetic or have poor circulation in your legs see the doc immediately
