I'm not sure if this is the best place to post this, but I can't think of any where else.
Two weeks ago, I went to get my monthly pedicure, and everything seemed normal. Although last week, I removed the nail polish color, to change it myself. I just was not loving the color I had gotten. After removing the polish, I noticed this white (infected looking) spot under my toe nail, around the cuticle on one corner. I thought it was an infection so I have treated it like one, being extra careful and doing everything right for an infection. Last night as i was cleaning the nail I saw that it is not an actual infection, and that the nail is actually just coming off! I can pull it up, and clearly see there is no infection underneath.
It's like the nail has split side ways at the cuticle, and is coming off. ( not the whole nail only just the outer cornor, down at the cuticle )
I'm wondering if this could be caused by getting a pedicure? I did go to a diffrent salon then I normally do, since my usual place was packed and I didn't feel like waiting forever. I don't recall doing anything that would have damaged my nail, and I noticed a couple days after my pedicure the spot where the nail is "split " was slightly raised.
Is there a way to fix this? Or an i going to have to get the nail removed? Has anyone else had to deal with something like this?
