patagonialukeYep last season I didn't drain mine in time so it fell off and the nail underneath was super ingrown. So I had to get that removed in September in hopes that it would grow back normal but it's not, so the docs gonna kill whatever makes it grow and I guess I just won't have a toenail
When i am running in the fall for XC i always get this on my 2nd toe, for about a week or two it gets purple and swolen, then I don't drain it and i grow 2 layers of toenail. After 6-12 months it becomes lose enough that i can either pull off most of it or clip it. There is usually a little layer underneath so it works out good. Idk about the big toe. That has to be rough.
