Blue toe nail
Hi Doc

I danced 8 hours on high heels, the next morning my one big toe was swollen and a bit blue. It started getting bluer by the day. Will this toe nail fall off? If so, will it grow back?

Hallo Desire
It depends how badly it was bruised whether it will fall off, but it will probably grow back if it does. It will most probably grow out gradually (1mm per week)
