Yesterday my toenails had clotted blood and there had also been a glow and now my nails are about to come off, have experienced the same thing twice and in the same nails the distance also occurs not so far, will my loose nails grow? new or how ?, and if it grows again approximately how long is the growth period?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Often injury to the finger causes the nail to loose. You do not need to worry. Loose nails can still grow back as long as the place of origin of nail growth is still in good condition. In general, nails will grow back within 6 months. However, this condition can be longer, depending on the patient's age, nutritional adequacy, the presence or absence of infection in the finger where the growth of nails and the presence or absence of chronic diseases (such as diabetes will require more time to grow nails). Toenails will grow longer than toenails. You can check the condition of your finger to the nearest doctor to see things that can inhibit nail growth.
Some things you can do at home:
1. Clean fingers regularly 2 times a day, using sterile liquid if there are still wounds.
2. If there is a torn wound with bleeding, take it to consult with the nearest doctor, so that the wound can be sutured to link it in order to prevent infection and speed healing.
3. If you appear inflamed or festering, consult your nearest doctor. If needed the doctor will give antibiotic ointment to overcome the infection that occurs.
4. Eat nutritious foods, especially cork fish and white eggs. Where these foods contain high protein needed for cell repair.
5. Eat high calcium milk to meet your calcium needs. The process of forming nails also requires calcium.
