If your toenail is about to fall off, you're probably thinking "Help!" in sheer panic and making the same face as the "scream" emoji. But when it comes to losing one of these little guys, it pays to take a chill pill and wait. It's worth giving your toe a little extra TLC because you definitely don't want an infection to spread to the new nail growing in"Redness/drainage/excessive pain could be signs of infection but not always," says Said Atway, DPM, a podiatrist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

"The consequences of a bacterial infection in the toe are the same as the consequences of any other skin/soft tissue infection in that the infection could spread and lead to further detriment of the surrounding tissue," Dr. Atway says. Obviously, not great—so if you think it could be infected, go get it looked at by a doc.
