So long story short, I bruised my big toe awhile back, and there was a dark spot on the nail for awhile. Today, while doing some yard work, I jammed it and the entire nail flipped up. I will not come completely off easily. I applied antiseptic as well as gauze. My school's health center will open tomorrow at 1PM and I will go to it then. Should I do anything else? Should I try to tug the nail off? (I don't think I should) Also, I read that it can take up to a year to have it grow back. How will this limit my physical activity during this time? I was planning on doing a great deal of hiking this summer, and I really do not want to put this on hold, can I still hike with it while it is regrowing if I cover it somehow? I will ask all these questions when I see someone at the health center tomorrow, but I was wondering if anyone here who has a similar experience could give me some advice/information. Thanks!
