Question: pinky toe - bleeding around nail

 pegster - Mon Aug 29, 2005 6:53 pm

I ran my toe into something. My pinky toe hurts bad but i'm concerned about bleeding around the toe nail. Will I loose the nail? Will it grow back? What should I do??

You may lose the nail. That frequently happens and is usually painless. If the toe hurts, continues to swell or is giving you problems, you may consider seeing your healthcare professional to get an x-ray to see if the toe is broken.
