By toe nail has been bruised for about 4 months. It has finally fallen off. I have been wrapping it , and my nurse at school put a little ace wrape ( made esp. for toes) on it, ( it's thin). I haven't gone on pointe with it get, but odes anyone suggest anything to make it grow faster. Or is it the kind of thing you shoul djust give time. I will no way ever stop dancing so I am just going to let my big toe suffer. any suggestions would be much appreciated!

It just takes its own time. Anytime you have a wound that causes an injury to the skin that starts bleeding or just an opening like a decubitus ulcer, the Conventional Wisdom runs that you take in more protein to speed healing; that's fairly simple to do, considering all the food options open to us today, not to mention supplements. Just keep padding it until things fill in back to normal.
