This is my very horrifying fingernail that is in it's final stages of sloughing off. I broke my finger tip in a car door experience several weeks ago and the nail is finally separating from my finger. I am trying to work it off because there is still an attached piece of live flesh that will create excruciatingly violent waves of pain. Pretty cool huh?

Cool pic, Ben. Have you ever wondered what a fingernail tastes like ?????

Nice, put some rubbing alcohol on the skin under there, it'll make the nail grow faster...I promise.

The best part is.. You could probably sell that thing on Ebay.

You need salt....lots of salt and a pair of pliers. The salt will ease the pain...Honest[:D] Alex

We are actually giving it away in a raffle at the office. I have one of those paperweight sealer kits that came with a preserved rattle snake head. I used the head for other general mischeif so I agreed to encase the nail to seal off the medical waste biohazard before relinquishing ownership.

Ben, There is some useful medical information regarding your fingernail, both for preventing infection and speeding the regrowth of a healthy nail at the medical website below. I suggest that you check it out, so your fingernail heals properly. [url]http://www.yahoo.com[/url] [puke]

Done that at least a dozen times. But I did it with a hammer,left thumb or index finger. You'd think after swinging a hammer for 20 years I'd learn to hit the metal nail and not the finger nail.[:D]

Yeah, that happened to my big toenail. I was walking around the house barefoot, and my toe jammed into a pumpkin that was lying on the ground (it was around halloween. I know, it's weird...) anyway, it was really painful and bloody for about two days, but I just left a bandaid on it and a few weeks later it fell off, then grew back. Leave it alone and it should take care of itself.

Vinegar, definitely vinegar. Definitely.[shock] coyote3

Man that is pretty cool looking. Well looks like all you need is a bottle of JACK DANIELS going down into the old stomach and about 2 hours later get a pair of plyers and just yanck that old thing off, bandage up and you would be good to go. [shock] [shock]

I did that to my finger in shop class about 20+ years ago. I was on a swim team and that chlorine water really cleaned it up, It fell of about two days later I think. A little advice; use the other hand when you go to the bathroom. :)

dude, that is lightweight. my big toe looked sorta like that, but it was 2x size, and their was green stuff coming out. they (only once, briefy) talked about possible amputation. i have to have the toenail removed after it grew back 2 or 3 times, and the doctor took stuff out so it wouldnt grow very fast. freaky shit

Yes... please don't get my original photo of a life's experience thread locked with some nasty inflamed corn hole site. My finger has nothing to do with that.
Link Posted: 1/18/2002 10:48:45 PM EDT
Spearweasel, just why would you feel the need to share that with the board? Hmm?
Link Posted: 1/18/2002 11:08:09 PM EDT
I had a similar experince. When I first broke it back it stood at a 90 degree from the rest of my finger, because it was still attached at the base I mashed it back down and hoped it would reattach, it did'nt. Two days later it was pale and dead looking but still very attached at the base, I thought better remove it now than later. The trusty pliers were brought out and on my [b]SECOND[/b] try the nail was removed. It did'nt hurt as bad as I thought, was more of an ache afterwards. [uzi]

Spearweasel, man you are seriously disturbed to post that link. That has got to be one of the most disgusting pictures I've ever seen! Alex[puke]

I was pushing my motorcycle out of the garage one morning before work (about 5 am) and as usual, I was running late and in a hurry. I didn't put the sidestand up (never did, as I would always park it just outside to close garage door) as I backed it out, and in my haste wedged the tip of the sidestand right inbetween my big toe and toenail. Separated the two into a perfect 90 degree angle. You could actually see the outline of the nail of my big toe straining against the top of my Nikes. I let out a string of obscenities that echoed up and down my street. Pulling that shoe off was definitely a treat.

....you saw the flick 'eh
Link Posted: 1/19/2002 4:11:35 AM EDT
I cut the tip off my middle finger/LH 20 years ago, in a jointer. It really freaked me out to see the bone sticking out the tip of my finger (actually, the ring fingertip was taken off too, but not as bad). Rather than take the fingertip off at the first joint (and disappointing my wife), they cut into my palm flesh, folded the finger down, and sewed the finger into a pocket there, and grafted (taking 6 weeks). Guy did a good job. I still have a perfect flick.

I had the 'accident' at about 2:45 am in a Sunday morning. Living in the inner city, you can usually raise all kinds of a ruckuss without any disturbance but I was screaming like a little girl so loud when I mashed it that my neighbors called Cincy Po Po. They though someone was being raped or murdered by the way I was carrying on. The cops roll up into my parking lot within about 1 minute of it happening. I was sitting on the curb completely withdrawn from reality. Of course the 11 double Makers & Cokes weren't helping matters. They wanted to call an ambulance but I said no way I was going anywhere. The cops were chuckling at me. I felt real stupid, I was drunk, and my finger was throbbing. I ended up sleeping for 2 entire days after it happened. I have to admit that it hurt like no other pain I have ever experienced. I thought it was gone at first when the door hit it. Since I am a programmer and also play the piano, all I could think about was "How am I going to explain this to everyone?"

Put your finger in ice 45-60 seconds. Rip the nail off with whatever, peroxide/alcohol (if you're brave [:D] and bandage. Shouldn't feel a thing.

Well... I chickened out. I Xacto knifed the nail up to the edge of where the skin is still attached. I soaked my finger in warm water for a couple hours last night to loosen the last remaining chunk. But I am not about to get nutty with any pliers. This thing has hurt too bad already and the last thing I want is a nasty infection to top it off. More pics...
