Shredded Nail Can It Be Normal Again?
Good night. My nails were hit by a coconut grater, which caused the nails to be partially depleted and the flesh of the nails was injured because it was dissolved. Can my nails grow back normally? Or will abnormal nail growth occur? At present there is still a slight pain but the blood has not come out anymore

Nails are one part of the human body that has a hard but elastic structure. Nails cover some of the fingers and help the fingers to hold objects around them.
Related to your complaint, partially peeled nails can grow back to normal. You don't need to worry because nails are a part of the body that will continue to grow for life. If certain abnormalities such as infection are not found, the nail will grow back to its original shape. Of course this requires time during the process of healing the wound after being exposed to sharp objects such as grater.
You do not need to worry, the thing that you should pay attention to now is the treatment of wounds on your finger after grater.
Take care of the wound from dirt by cleaning debris / dirt that is still attached and giving antiseptic. After that the wound bandages to protect exposure to germs or dirt from the outside which can increase the risk of infection. A clean wound will speed up the healing process. If you feel pain, then take pain medications such as Paracetamol. If necessary, carry out an examination to the nearest doctor for proper evaluation and administration.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
