Ok, so, my son accidentally walked all over my bare feet with his huge heavy tennis shoes and pulled my toe nail all the way off...yes ouch...seriously, OUCH! (This was about 3 days ago)
It was hanging on by the side and cuticle area....so instinctively I pushed it back down and cant bear to touch it!!!
It does not hurt anymore...just feels strange and I am very protective of it...scared someone will pull it the rest of the way off...or that it will get caught on a blanket or something.
So do you think it will fall off by itself or will it survive?
Have you ever had this type of thing happen?

my brother did that same thing to my mom all the time. you probably will lose the nail but try to keep the nail on it as long as you can it will help keep it from getting an infection if the nail-bed is covered. I would put a band-aid on it to try to hold it in place.
