Maybe 6 weeks ago now I managed to slam my thumb in the car boot. Once I'd stopped swearing and washed the blood off it didn't look as if it needed A&E, but nail was obviously badly bruised. Just put a clean dressing on every day and it's healed well.
Wrecked part of nail is now starting - very slowly - to grow up and separate from the base. Ditto at one side where it's also clearly separating. However, top half of nail, which escaped damage, is still quite intact. The damaged bits do look horrible!
I'm now getting twitchy about the whole thing tearing off, unless I wear a plaster over it every day until it grows out completely - which could take months.
Nothing else I can do, is there - or is there?
