Black Toenail

Tuesday, September 01, 2015

So anyone hare about black toenail effect? All runners get it they say. Me very discouraged at my black toenail, just from walking. Will probably lose the big toe nail. Plus it really hurts and throbs, not fun, and can't walk. Hate this had to vent.

    Been there, lost two nails. Wrapping with stick to itself tape - Curad makes a nice one, but store brands have it, too - helps with irritation and keeps the nail from ripping off. Also, I'll second the 1/2 size up suggestion. Did that and haven't had an issue since.

    It usually only happens when the end of your nail pushes forward into the toe of the shoe. Half size up on your shoe may help.

    My black toenails usually come from someone stepping on them. I've never lost a nail from them but they do throb when it happens. My husband usually drills or stabs a hole through the nail so the blood can escape. And no, he doesn't use a real drill. lol
