Hi all. About mid-december, I developed a bruise under my toenail. It is probably because I was wearing shoes 2 sizes too small for me playing tennis. I noticed it after playing one day, it was rubbing quite a bit. When I got home I took my sock off and there was a light pink colour (although darker than usual) under my toenail. After a few weeks, this developed into a purple colour, and now it's brown. It only covers a small section of the nail. It's been about 5 months now, and I've read that toenails take 6-12 months to grow fully. It's not caused/causing any pain whatsoever, however I feel I have to take extra care of it. Recently (past few days) it's started to 'break', and there's a small 'scrath', that it starting to lift. This also isn't causing any pain, but again, I have to avoid catching it on things. I'll get a few pics up tomorrow when I search for my camera (if you're man enough to look ) Anyway, has anyone else experienced similar things? I think the cause of it all was slightly tennis-related, so I'm hoping some of you have an idea about it. I've heard that they can just drop of too. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
