hi
actually the nail has come out because of a long standing fungal infection beneath it.
the infected part of skin under the nail is yellow in color.
apply anti fungal local cream daily. keep the area dry. wipe it as soon as it gets wet.
thanks

hello there
thanks for sending the picture.
the skin has been yellow out there because of low nourishment due to an infected nail over it.
infections diminish the blood supply in the affected are causing the yellowish discoloration of the skin.
you should apply creams to treat the infection.
oral hematinics will help it heal even faster

HI
NOW ONCE THAT THE INFECTED NAIL HAS FALLEN OFF THE SKIN COLOR OF THE SKIN WILL COME BACK TO NORMAL SPONTANEOUSLY IN A FEW DAYS. THE NAIL GERMINAL MATRIX IS STILL VIABLE AT THE BASE AND THAT SHOULD HELP THE HEALING. APPLY ANTIBIOTIC CREAM
