Hello dalidkarly, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Nails that are loose from their pads (bed nails) will have the potential for infection, because feet are a source of infection besides the palms because the feet are the limbs that are always in contact with floors that are not necessarily clean, footwear which is also a source of bacteria and dirt. So that to prevent infection, all you need to do is take care of your thumb nails that have fallen off with a few steps such as:
clean the thumb that is dislodged by using clean water or NaCl solution, dry it using sterile gauze, apply antibiotic ointment thinly and evenly to prevent infection if it is in the house, it is better not to cover the thumb, but if you are on the move and have the potential to come into contact with dirt, then cover with gauze that is glued together with a bandage change of gauze periodically.
