How does a toenail grow?
Keeping this in view, do toenails grow from the bottom or top?
Fingernails grow from beneath the nail fold (the flap of skin just below the white, semicircular part of the nail plate) and grow up towards the tip of the finger. If you think about cutting your fingernails, you cut them at the tip as they grow outward.
Furthermore, will my big toenail grow back? Once your toenail falls off, it can't reattach itself and keep growing. You'll need to wait for the new nail to grow back in its place. Depending on the cause and how much, if any, of your toenail remains, you might need additional treatment to make sure your toenail grows back properly.
Also to know is, how does a toenail grow back after being removed?
Sometimes a toenail or fingernail may be removed because of injury, pain from an ingrown nail, infection, or to look at the abnormal tissue below the nail. After your nail has been removed, it will take a few weeks for the nail to start to grow back. It will take about 3 to 6 months for a fingernail to fully grow back.
