Bruised Toenail Falling Off


Bruised Toenail Falling Off. This home treatment guide will tell you how to get your toenail to grow back, and how long it will take!


Will The Toenail Ever Grow Back?

  • It will almost always grow back as long as a stem cells that grow the nail deep in the tissue were not ripped out!
  • Long term damage is highly unlikely as these growth cells are very well protected deep near the bone of the toes.

How Long Until The Toenail Grows Back?

  • The toenail will grow back at approximately 1 millimeter per month.
  • This means you will be waiting a long time!
  • If your toenail is 10 millimeters long, then you could be waiting approximately 10 months.
  • If just the tip of your toenail is damaged then the wait will be much shorter in duration.
