4 year old big toenail is torn and almost off. Should I pull it?

Do we need meds to keep from being infected, and can we cover with a bandaid, or leave it open to air?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Is it your four year old's big toenail that is torn?

I would be hesitant myself to remove it and would rather have the pediatrician do it.

Consider speaking with your physician and following any recommendations.
